For those looking to escape the bustling city for a day, Mbudya Island is the perfect place to go for a relaxing respite of beautiful beaches, clear waters, and amazing seafood. You can take a short boat ride here from many points along Dar es Salaam’s harbor – just ask a local boatman, or arrange a fare near the White Sands hotel, the Slipway, or Kunduchi. Snorkeling and cabanas are available at a price, or you can bring your own supplies for a day of rest and relaxation.
Price: $20 roundtrip from The Slipway (minimum of four people)
Watch out for: The lobster – some of the best in the city
