The owners describe this beautiful spot as 'no news, no shoes', which says it all really. It's at the end of the 12km stretch of beach that begins in Shela (a little beyond Kipungani). The bar serves up refreshing cocktails, the food is healthy and hip, and hostess Mary-Jo always has great stories to tell.

There are miles of empty beach for lazing about, swimming with wild dolphins, kitesurfing and windsurfing. Only local materials have been used in the construction of the six spacious bandas (thatched-roof huts), which are simple but chic.
