Mbudya Island (beach) – this island is bigger than Bongoyo and not as crowded. It’s slightly further away from the capital, but quite picturesque (as expected from an island that’s part of the Dar Es Salaam Marine Reserve). The water is turquoise and perfect. It’s best accessed from Mbezi Beach, but can also be accessed by boat from Slipway for a higher fee. Like Bongoyo, you will need to pay the marine conservation fee (TSH 27,000 for foreigners), but when you see this island paradise, you’ll understand why.
