Nakupenda Beach

A sandy islet in the middle of the ocean, Nakupenda Beach will make you feel as though you’re on the set of Cast Away. But this fantasy is a reality on the ethereal shores of Nakupenda. After sunbathing on the golden sand, grab a snorkel and slip into the warm and sparkling waters that are so translucent you’ll feel as though you’re flying. Keep an eye out for bright coral, starfish, and other sea life. After your swim, savor barbeque seafood on the beach.
