The next morning at around 6.30 to 7am, the fisherman are back with their catch of all shapes and sizes. See fish and sea creatures you have never seen before on the market ready for sale.

Kendwa Rocks, 10mins drive from the hotel.
If you are looking for a crowded party this is obviously the place. Every Saturday from 22:00 until the morning. It is located in Kendwa Beach.
FULL MOON parties started off with traditional NGOMA drum&dance groups on the white sandy ground of Kendwa, where guests used to join with performers in African style. As bar life started developing (our tiny bar was the first to open in 1998), DJs became popular. DJ Yussuf (UK/Zbar) was favorite for many years with his world music oriented Routes in Rhythm.
