Nungwi in detail


Dangers & Annoyances

There have been occasional robberies on quiet sections of the beach; don't walk here alone or with valuables, particularly at night.


Because of the large number of tourists in Nungwi, it’s easy to overlook the fact that you’re in a traditional, conservative environment. When walking in the village, be respectful, especially with your dress and your interactions with locals, and ask permission before snapping photos.

Internet Access

Nearly all hotels, cafes and bars offer wi-fi, although at the budget places this tends to be very slow and patchy.


There's no ATM, but most hotels can help you change US dollars into local currency, and there's a forex desk at Amaan Bungalows Beach Resort.
