Relax

Stroll along the powdery white sand of Kiwengwa Beach or immerse yourself in the balmy waters of the Indian Ocean when the tide is high.

Alternatively, venture out across the coral reef to explore the marine life amongst its tidal pools.

Or simply laze on your veranda or by the pool listening to the lively melodies of children singing as they gather cockles and mussels in the shallows.
