The beach crab resort is a very nice and relaxing place. The beach huts are basic but exactly what you need. The view on the beach and the see are fantastic. there is a very nice restaurant at the resort. The staff and the owners are very friendly and helpful, they really want you to have a relaxing and good time at their place. I would definitely recommend people to go her.

One small side note, getting there and away is very expensive. We came with a bus from Tanga to Pangani and had to take a taxi from Pangani to the resort ( $25). There was no other transport possible. Als getting away was very expensive, there is no transport to the south. We had two options, same road back to Tanga (6hours) and then go south, or taking a private boat to Zanzibar. We took the boat but that costed $140. It was the money worth to get to the resort but take it into account in your budget (especially budget travelers).

We are a family of three and spent three enjoyable nights at Beach Crab Resort in the coconut bungalows. The beach was lovely, the meals very good, the managers friendly and responsive. We enjoyed hanging out on the elevated sitting area (we dubbed it the tower) with a great breeze and view of the beach. We enjoyed the foosball, pool and ping pong tables, and the snorkeling trip arranged for us. Beach Crab is just a short walk on the beach to the other Ushongo Beach resorts and a small village.

Quiet, clean, very relaxing. Yet also lot's of things to do! Join the daily beachvolleyball competition, go snorkling or windsurfing, we went diving, or just lay in the shade of the palm trees with the sound of waves and tiny beach crabs cleaning your beach. Lovely staff, great food and good facilities.

Room Tip: We had a beach hut, which was very nice. The coconut huts are more luxourious but haven't seen those inside.

Love this place and would definately recommend it to fellow travelers.
Me and my husband stayed here for about a week as a beach stop traveling from Arusha to Tanga.
The food served in the reataurant in the evenings was excellent and well catered for me as a vegetarian. The staff were superfriendly and professional.

We stayed here for one very sleepless night (the cheaper cottages are NOT good - VERY poorly ventilated and they just feel a dark and unwelcoming - hence the rating) and then moved down the beach to Mike's, which was better value.
The place runs like clockwork, but doesn't feel very beachy, and the dinner was ridiculously expensive at 25.000 TSH with one meat and one vegetarian choice, and you can't really have dinner anywhere else unless you're willing to risk walking back along the beach in the dark. Breakfast was really nice though. They've got lots of games and other things to do, and staff are helpful if a little.... strict.
