From Stone Town the journey on surface roads takes between 1.5 and 2 hours, depending on the delays of road obstacles and police checkpoints, and number of stops the driver makes en route. There are several options available:
- Hire a car and self-drive: $50USD / day
- Hotel-arranged transport in private car or 4WD: $50-60USD each way
- Hire taxi from Stone Town ferry terminal: 15000-40000TSH ($10-25USD) each way depending on which part of Nungwi and how many passengers would be travelling. Remember to NEGOTIATE!
- Ride dalladalla #116 from Darajani/Creek Road in Stone Town: 2000TSH ($1.30USD) per person is the regular price, but the operator may insist you pay a "tourist rate" of 5000TSH ($3.30USD).
The 'boat yard' in Nungwi, with its tapping and tamping and seemingly casual activity, calls for photographs. At sunset about 50 boats leave from Nungwi, all of them with white sails at a certain angle, to go deep sea fishing at night: another beautiful sight.
The aquarium on the north coast of Nungwi near the lighthouse, rears small turtles found on the beach until they are large enough and then released to survive in the sea. The aquarium is a natural pond with seawater that seeps through the cliff at high tide. There is also a python, monitor lizard, and tortoises that can be handled.
At low tide, wade far out into the ocean. Be careful not to step on sea urchins.
Scuba dive around Mnemba atoll. ($180USD with East Africa Diving for double dive)
Take a 2 hour sunset cruise on a dhow down to Kendwa and back ($15USD per person). Alternatively, hire the whole dhow and enjoy a private cruise, lingering where you wish ($40USD). Clever negotiation may get you free snorkling equipment hire and a stop at Kendwa where you can leap over the side and snorkle on the reef.
Visit the Mnarani Aquarium/Sea Turtle Conservation area (7000TSH or $5USD per person)
Langi Langi Beach Bungalows Restaruant. Excellent food with a fine sea view. One of the better places to eat in Nungwi13000TSH. edit
Flame Tree Cottages Restaurant. This place has a shorter menu than most places, and the food is mediocre at best. If you're not a fan of seafood, ask before ordering anything not in the seafood section of the menu - even the "Chicken with coconut sauce" is mostly fish.edit
Cholo's bar The most chilled out bar ever. Hamocks above the bar, the urinal is a bath tub and the benches are halved dhows. The beer is 2,500 shillings for Tusker Kili or others. The music they play is well selected and makes the beach, which the bar is directly on, even more pleasant to do nothing on.

Although Nungwi is a quite friendly and safe place to be, there have however been some theft cases whereby the guests' belongings were stolen. Some basic care should be taken whilst handling money, Most of the hotels do have a Safe for keeping Guest's Money which should be used for storing the hard cash and valuables.
