Just over an hour’s drive from Tanga hidden away and totally secluded is the delightful Fish Eagle Point (FEP). Discovered, designed and built by the owners Steve and Cathy Attwell in a stunning location. FEP is set amongst a volcanic rocky coastline which is sandy inshore, but with exposed rock pools teeming with life at low tide going out over 200 metres in places. All the rooms (many sea facing) blend into the lush tropical surroundings and are simply but stylishly furnished. We enjoyed a two storey Bahari Suite with a large double bed and sitting area on the first floor (bathroom and further seating downstairs) waking up to views over the bay every day – bliss! The rooms have no windows and are open all sides to the surrounding forest (see photos) so you lie in bed feeling like you are part of nature, listening to the birds, bush babies and the ocean.
We spent many happy hours rock-pooling, snorkelling and kayaking through the mangrove with its almost total silence. This is a place to take off your watch and tune into the stunningly beautiful surroundings which change by the hour depending on the tide.
The food is good, fresh and plentiful with a meat or fish choice every evening and the bar and waiting staff always smiling and happy to help. The rooms are very spread out, so great for privacy, but the main buildings and pool are in the adjoining bay.
This is perfect for couples and families and at around $65 pppn for three meals and a great room this represents excellent value for money and Kilimanjaro beers are only £1.20 a go! Free Wi-Fi is available in the bar area.
It’s a kick your shoes off, chill out sort of place with enough to do for families as well as the more active, so don’t be put off by the remoteness of FEP you’re bound to have a good time.
