We really wanted to go there, travelled all the way to Kunduchi Beach Hotel where we learnt that the boat to go there is 15000 TSH/person but to put your leg on the island cost not-Tanzanians 20.000 TSH (10 USD). When I asked what can we see different there we learnt that the beach thereis exactly the same as the hotel beach! So we spend a few hours near the hotel, on the beutiful, abandoned beach.
So advice: do not bother unless you want to spend some money.

We went out to the island on a Sunday morning. It was peaceful since we went so early. As the day progressed many boats arrived with a great number of people. Many of these people think everyone wants to hear their music.

The park fees are a bit high.

The fish and chips are overpriced.

Being a Kenyan, we have much better looking beaches in our homeland.
We paid KES 1000 to cross over and admission charges.
Carry your "cold" drinks and food to avoid disappointment.

If You're Looking for a Day off from the Busy and chaotic life of Dar es Salaam, Then Mbudya Island is the perfect gate away location,
This place has the perfect water to take a Dip (Deep water), Lovely Fresh Sea Food and the most relaxing atmosphere!
