Sunset Bungalows is located in Kendwa along the northwest coast of Zanzibar.

Originally this was a small guesthouse consisting of a handful of bungalows set on the cliff. Over time it has grown up greatly coming to include some wooden bungalows on the beach and five two-storey buildings set back on the plot. Rooms are divided into air-con deluxe beach bungalows, air-con court yard rooms, air-con apartment, non-air-con cliff bungalows. Apartments are the newest ones hence also the better functioning ones.

The non-tidal beach has long been one of the most beautiful on the island. It is a shame that over the years the number of visitors has grown exponentially since most of small guesthouses have been little by little replaced by large beach resorts.

Sunset Bungalows is complemented by the bar and restaurant located on the beach next to Kendwa Rocks guesthouse popular. Meals cannot be pre-booked and have to be paid on site, average price per meal is 20 dollars.

Diving and snorkeling can be arranged with Scuba Doo, the independent diving centre located on the beach while deep sea fishing can be arranged with Zanzibar Watersports, the water sports centre at Ras Nungwi.

Sunset Bungalow is a very simple and rustic facility suitable to young budget travellers ready to accept to a certain unreliability of service and definitely more interested to the surrounding environment than to any hotels comfort.
