Shanzu beach

Ultimate guide (March 2020)
Shanzu is one of the best beaches in Mombasa, Kenya. As everywhere around, there is a problem of strong low tide, but sea bottom is sandy, unlike neighboring beaches with rocky bottom. As for the coast side, there are a lot of canonical palms, that we dream of. Beachfront resorts charge a small entrance fee to get to the beach. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
