Ushongo beach

Ultimate guide (February 2020)
Ushongo is an excellent beach in the north of mainland Tanzania. It is almost as beautiful as Zanzibar, while prices are much cheaper, and there are no tourists, nor local beach boys. Also in a contrast to Zanzibar, Ushongo beach has many palms, and has no problem of low tides. So this is a laid back place with an acceptable service. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
