La Madrugada Beach Resort basic informations

We have 2 pools in the center of the plot facing towards the sea. At the pool you will find our pool bar with plenty of refreshments.

All the rooms have view over the pool-area with seating outside to enjoy ”a night on the terrace”. The interior of the rooms are all arranged in a simple and elegant Zanzibarian Style.

The Makunduchi area is a quiet and peaceful area where the main activities include beach & sea activities, trips to local sites or the famous festivals in the area. Usually taking place around the 23rd or 24th of July, the Mwaka Kogwa is the celebration of the Shirazi or Persian new year. It is a flamboyant demonstration of Zanzibar passion and style, with the biggest single event being held at Makunduchi in Southern Unguja.

When it comes to water sports and activities you have a bundle to choose from! The nice breeze provides a perfect environment for kiting, the crystal clear water is made for snorkling and diving, and not to forget deep-sea fishing! Ever dreamt of swimming with a dolphin? This could be your chance, this is the perfect location for dolphin safari! If your more into relaxing, walk 15 meters and you have reached our beautiful beachfront!

The settlement of Makunduchi lies in the far south east of the island. The town is, besides Stonetown, the biggest of Zanzibar with a population of approximately 12,000 people who principally survive on fishing and seaweed farming. Despite the beautiful setting of this small town with its long white sandy beaches, there is very little tourist activity in this part of Zanzibar. Makunduchi is famous for the Mwaka Kogwa festival which takes place over four days in July.

The location is great for the people love the natural and traditional Zanzibar village. The 3 kilometer long white sand beach perfect for walking, running, relaxing, and exploring… It is ideal for family, for friends, and romantic couples. Not recommended for people who search an exiting night life.
