Kendwa Rocks


... is located in the Kendwa area on the northwest coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

When we first visited the Kendwa around 1993 it seemed very remote. Here we found a tiny little guesthouse of palm shacks at the back of a fabulous white-sand beach and we were welcomed in by owner Ali, whose dreadlocks had not even reached his shoulders by then.

Back then we used to include this in trips for our younger guests on a regular basis.

Since then the beach has changed out of all recognition as a sequence of guest-houses and resorts grew up on either side. This lodge has also grown and developed over the years and now offers a range of room types, reasonably reliable service down in the beach bar and restaurant below and a decent dive centre.

Kendwa Rocks may now be dwarfed by its neighbours, but there is still a residual Rastafarian scene here which continues to attract a younger crowd.
