Information about activities, hotels and services in Kendwa

[nggallery id=4 template=carousel images=9]

Kendwa village is the youthful option

Kendwa is the most popular budget destination in Zanzibar. It’s youthful, the beaches are beautiful and the hotels are mostly reasonably priced.

Every saturday there is a party in the Kendwa Rocks Hotel. When the Saturday happens to be full moon, the party turns into a full moon party. This is also good to take into consideration in case you do not want to hear the music whole Saturday night.

There are many snorkeling and diving opportunities in Kendwa. The village itself is small, but there are some restaurants and shops outside the hotels. This is the rasta beach of Zanzibar.

NOTE: Don’t book tours through beach boys. They are not the same as tour companies – they don’t pay taxes and have zero responsibility if something happens or the tour doesn’t come true. Also, their knowledge is mostly not on the required level. Please support the lawful businesses and book through dive centers or tour companies.
