“Relaxing, swimming, enjoying the sun”
Review of Bongoyo Island

We just lay in the shade under the bandas (huts) and enjoyed the lovely weather. The bar provides drinks that are not super cold but fairly good in the hot weather. The ocean was warm and you can rent snorkel gear to explore the fish life around the island.

I love this location, it is 10 mins by boats from whitesands hotel and you can have a nice weekend picnic and catch a swim in beautiful azure blue waters. Also a good place to have leisure fishing. It is a nice excellent get away island

Take a short trip on the ferry from Slipway in Dar and enjoy this Incredible paradise island setting with fish and chips / calamari enjoyed on the beach - picnic style. - Swim and snorkle in the azure seas. - Much cleaner than the waters around Dar es Salaam. Very casual "Robinson Crusoe" type experience.

great island to chill, although the food and sitting options are not ideal, no much facilities (if any), you need to bring your own activities (or food & drinks if possible)
