Swahili charm and affordable prices.

Restaurant and sunbeds are right on the beach.

 

•  Mbuyu Beach is a tiny,  eco-friendly lodge in a tropical garden on the Indian Ocean. An old baobab tree ("mbuyu" in Swahili) has given the place its name.  

 

•  We have just five cottages that can accommodate up to 12 guests. Far and wide, there are no big hotels. If you are looking for peace and quiet in an unspoilt environment - this is your place.

 

•  The village of Msambweni has still kept its friendly Swahili charm. The fishermen moor their sailing boats close to the bungalows – so enjoying the “catch of the day” is always guaranteed in our much-praised little restaurant. 

 

•  Located halfway between Mombasa and Tanzania, Msambweni is a good starting point for snorkeling trips to Shimoni or a safari in the Shimba Hills - if you want to leave your hammock at all...

The neighboring fishermen's bay: there may be some villagers around, but tourists are rare.
