Kigamboni (beach) – this beach is easily accessible from the capital (it’s only 10 km from the city center). Kigamboni is a clean, white sand beach with beautiful water for swimming. To get there from Dar Es Salaam, it’s best to leave early and spend the whole day there, since traffic jams can make it a longer trip than it needs to be. You can either take the ferry from Kivukoni or else go by road via the new Kigamboni Bridge. A taxi can take you the whole way across (whichever route you choose, as cars are allowed on the ferry).
