“Probably the island's best budget beach option and popular with honeymooners, the Shooting Star is a small lodge with private bungalows and rooms overlooking the pure white sand of Kwengwa beach below. Hang out in the bar and play Bao, the local board game, go diving with the bigger hotels nearby or hire a car and explore. Private breakfast served on the beach is ultra romantic.”
