A beautiful white, powder fine sandy beach appears in front of Unguja Lodge when the tide recedes. Perfect for sunbathing, exploring rock pools and for a walk to the neighbouring fisherman village of Kizimkazi. The tide never goes out very far though. This means that we can keep our boats outside the reef and use them for diving and snorkelling at any time.
As the tide comes in, a few patches of beach remain, one of them next to the lodge, a 70 meter walk away. The tide washes the beach clean, keeps traffic low and gives the lodge a secluded feel. High tide is the perfect time for a swim in the ocean. We put a tide table in your villa so you can check the movements of the water and plan your day around it.
