Kendwa Beach is a stretch of white sand next to pristine turquoise waters. ❤
It is a dream destination for everything from tanning and partying, to enjoying a wide range of water sports.
While in Kendwa Beach we stayed at Sunset Bungalows.The resort had luxurious rooms, and our stay included a hearty continental breakfast.
Our first day in Kendwa Beach we indulged in some serious rest and relaxation, taking in the beautiful beach views and lounging in the sun. 😀
This place absolutely spoiled us rotten! The nearby resort had surprisingly good sushi, and our hotel had an awesome beach bar with colorful lights and swings. Also, others in our group decided to visit the nearby Mnarani Marine Turtle Reserve, and swim with some adorable sea turtles.
In the evening we all reunited to enjoy the beautiful beach sunset. The next day I signed up for a two-tank dive with Scuba Do Zanzibar. I went with four others on my truck for a morning dive, which gave us the added bonus of a stunning seaside sunrise. 😀The company took us in a speed boat to an island called Mnemba Atoll, one of the top diving areas in Zanzibar. 😀
Our first dive site was Wattabomi and the second was Kichuani. Here we are, ready to go! 😀
The visibility was spectacular, with loads of pink and purple coral teeming with marine life. Highlights included trigger fish, trumpet fish, butterfly fish, and a stingray.
In between dives we had nutella-filled chapati and tropical fruit to refuel. The biggest obstacle with the dives was the cold temperature. Luckily that was easily overcome after basking in the sun after. Overall I found the company to be incredibly professional; however, the dives were quite expensive at 120 USD. Here’s a short video I made from the two dives.
Well, seven people on our tour loved Zanzibar so much, they even decided to extend their stay for five days, and meet us at our next stop by taking a short flight.
The rest of us on the other hand began an over 800-mile road trip to Malawi. The drive was rigorous and full of speed bumps, but I really enjoyed the country views. Highlights included a field of 2,000-year-old Baobab trees, and our last taste of local Tanzanian cuisine, chips mayai. 😀
Anyway, after over 35 hours of driving we finally arrived in Malawi on the shores of Lake Malawi. Stay tuned to hear all about it. Until then. 🙂
