A Dar es Salaam Tranquil Beach

Oyster Bay wasn’t the only pristine beach close to Dar. There were tourist hotels scattered intermittently along the northern coastline.

On a week day, I could guarantee that, when I arrived at Kunduchi Beach Hotel and passed through its showy entrance, the beach was often exclusively mine, and the ocean delightfully lukewarm.

The picture I keep in my mind about this beach is being with my daughter before she turned one. We’d sit in a shady spot and let the fresh salty air waft over us.
