Jakobsen’s (Mwamahunga) Beach
Jakobsen’s (Mwamahunga) Beach information
Jakobsens's is actually two tiny, beautiful sandy coves below a wooded hillside. The overall setting is idyllic, especially if you visit during the week when few people are around; you could forgive yourself for thinking you were in the Caribbean. There are some bandas for shade, and soft drinks and water are sold at the guesthouse.
It’s 5km southwest of town, signposted off the road to Katonga. Dalla-dallas to Katonga can drop you at the turn-off, from where it’s about a 20-minute walk. A taxi is Tsh10,000.
