We came back to Tanzania this year specifically because my son and I wanted to come back to Pongwe again, after making a pact with my husband not to return to the same place again. So glad we did. My first impression was the same as last time we had found Paradise on Earth.
The sand is white and the turquoise sea warm. The staff are all very friendly, food good and a very relaxed atmosphere. Only slight draw back bathroom water is salinated as it is from the sea and put through a filter, but there is lots of it.
My only worry is that this paradise could soon be ruined by the hotel that is being built next door.
