Bongoyo island

Ultimate guide (April 2020)
Bongoyo is an island in the central Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Tourists are dropped off on a sandspit in the west end of the island. There is white sand and good entry into the water, but not trees. You may rent tiki huts to get some shadow. There is also northern beach, that gets less tourists. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
