Zanzibar City

Kendwa Village

Kendwa village is the youthful option for your stay in Zanzibar. Every Saturday there is a party at the Kendwa Rocks Hotel — and when the Saturday happens to be a full moon, the party turns into a full moon party! (You’ll also want to consider this in case you don’t want to hear the music all 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 if the tour doesn’t run. Please support lawful businesses and book through dive centers or tour companies.
