The BeachCrab Resort was established on a pristine 5 hectare big area and is beautifully situated on the clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The palm-lined bay Ushongo Beach is located 65 kilometres south of Tanga, between the town of Pangani and Saadani National Park, opposite the spice island Zanzibar.
The manager couple Florian and Laura Kroll welcome you at their little paradise.
Besides the calm idyll of unspoiled nature and kilometres of white beaches, the resort offers the perfect mix of relaxation, sports and adventure.
Coconut Bungalow – move in and feel at home!
These spacious and comfortable bungalows (30m²) have a homely feel and are furnished with a large double bed (1.80m x 2.10m), mosquito net, sofa, wardrobe, in-room safe, fan, table and chairs. The masoned and tiled “en suite” bathroom offers European standard sanitary facilities and is equipped with a hot sweet water shower (solar-powered), washing basin and a flush toilet.
The walls and the roof are traditionally made from woven coconut palm leaves and guarantee a cool and breezy climate inside.
If needed, two more beds can be added.
Deckchairs on your private spacious stone veranda welcome you to relax. A footbath and a sunroof completes the entrance area.
Beach Huts – Upgrade your camping!
Fed up with your camping mat? Why not upgrade to our Beach Huts?
Beneath shady palm trees we offer eight “beach-huts” – small cabins with roofs, steady canvas walls and lockable doors. The inside is furnished with floor mats, a small double bed (140*180cm), two single beds (twin room) or three single beds (triple room), mosquito nets, lighting and power supply. Furthermore, a small Zanzibar Box for your valuables completes the room.
2 Towels and bed linens are provided by us. A fan can be rented for 2 US $ per day.
The European standard sanitary facilities with slightly salty water are about 20 metres away. They are equipped with 6 coldwater showers, 4 wash basins and 4 flush toilets.
Camping – Choose your favourite spot and pitch your tent
Our camping ground is situated right next to the beach. The pristine area with many shady trees offers the perfect spot for everyone. Backpacker, jeep-driver, overlander and motorcyclist are all equally welcome. No matter if you arrive with a 20 kilo backpack or a 20 ton truck – we have enough space for you. Please note that we do NOT have any camping- or cooking equipment to rent.
Our separate sanitary coldwater facilities with slightly salty water are equipped with 6 European standard showers, 4 wash basins and 4 flush toilets.
Our beach bar is a great place to meet fellow travelers and enjoy a cold drink and some excellent food.
If you would like to cater for yourself, the nearby villages offer small markets and shops where you can find rice, seasonal vegetables and fruits as well as everyday articles such as toothpaste or washing powder. If you would like to have a BBQ, the local fishermen at the beach also sell fish.
