For the most part the beach was fantastic....the peddlers can get a little tiring. A simple Hapana (No in english) and walking away does the trick. Of course if you want to buy something the prices aren't horrible. Just make sure you keep track of...More

The beach is long and beautiful, but far from the amazing when it comes to swimming because of the tidal changes. This is not where you go for snorkeling, but great for relaxation and scenery 😁

Nice long sandy beach for a romantic walk or morning run. On the beach you can find lots of small bar/restaurant where you can stop for a drink or delicious food and also full of masai tribe shops where you can buy nice souvenirs.

Loved the breathtaking blue water and soft sand. Truly enjoyed spending downtime here reading a book while feeling the ocean breeze and seeing the boats sail by. The only downside is the beach boys can be a little annoying at times, but they were friendly...More
