Kiwengwa is also one of the most heavily developed sections of the coast, being dominated a a string of large resorts, most of which service the Italian packaged holiday market.

People have been attracted by the broad sandy beaches for which the area is rightly known, but these resorts and the associated development of roads and telecoms towers on a rather open and scrubby hinterland now make this one of the least attractive parts of the coast.

Of the large resorts only sister facilities
Blue Bay Beach Resort and Sultan Sands cater for a more international clientele.

In between the more busy stretches lie some quieter sections of beach containing a few smaller and more intimate accommodation options, notably around the village of Pwani Mchangani.

Of these which Shooting Star Lodge, Mchanga Beach Lodge and Next Paradise are the highest rated.
