    Welcome to Lazy Lagoon Island
Get away from it all to relax and unwind with 9km uninterrupted beach and swimming at all tides

Imagine a private island in the Indian Ocean, the waves lapping the white sandy beach just metres from your bed. The day stretches ahead with promises of sun, snorkeling and mangrove exploration, just interrupted by freshly prepared meals.

Island Activities

If lazing about on the beach or in the Swahili day-beds isn’t your thing, there is plenty to keep you busy; from snorkelling to kayaking, or historical trips to Bagamoyo or sun-drenched dhow trips.

  • A great spot for a getaway!

    A nice spot not very far from Dar es Salaam city where you can spend some time away from the chaotic city life. Very close compared to Zanzibar, if you are limited on time this place is highly recommended. Amazing rooms with a beach view, good food and service! Friendly staff.



When to Visit
