Actually an underwhelming experience. The sales over sells the experience. The minute you arrive on shore (via ferry from White Sands Hotel) you are asked whether you'd like to 'rent' shade...etc. Would not rush back!

This is an excellent place in Dar Es Salaam. If you are planning to visit Dar es salaam you must go to this Island.

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.
