This is a lovely private property with lots of privacy. You do not see and feel the neighbors.The house is a self-catering house. It is set back about 60 meters from the beach, up on a slight rise, so that you catch the lovely sea breeze all day long. Ushongo Beach is one of the little known secrets of the Tanzania coast. It is quiet, has a beautiful white sandy beach fringed by coconut palms, and generally is an ideal place in which to relax. For families, it is an idyllic spot for prime time with children. The temperature of the water is very pleasant at about 28C. Children and adults just love it. The bay has no undercurrents, no big breakers, no sharks, no hawkers and no crime. The beach is protected by three reefs, the furthest one with excellent snorkeling and scuba diving. You have as much privacy and peace and quiet that you want; you can also walk very safely up and down the beach, to see the quiet fishing village, or just walk for miles and miles. The famous coral reef of the Kenyan-Tanzanian coast is within a few minutes boat ride, and the snorkeling and diving are spectacular. There are just a few small hotels in the area (one is within a few minutesâ€™ walk of the house), so you can enjoy some social life or a meal out, if you wish. There is a diving company nearby through which you can organize boat trips and diving or snorkeling excursions.
