Dar es Salaam lies on the coast of Tanzania near the equator. So it should come as no surprise that the beautiful beaches are a great draw to both locals and visitors. Although many take the ferry to the island of Zanzibar for their beach holiday, there are plenty of options nearby.
You will find numerous beach resorts both north and south of Dar es Salaam. Although the beaches are often part of a hotel, most are not exclusively for hotel guests; anyone who orders a drink or lunch may use the facilities. An additional advantage is that the hotels keep the beaches clean and safe.
