I had such an amazing time here! We kayaked from the beautiful main camp set amongst mangroves, beautiful wild beaches and wooden fishing dhows, Oh and lots of coconut trees! There are a number of beautiful islands and sand bars you can paddle to and camp out on over night. I will definitely be returning for a longer stay next time with friends and family! It exceeds all expectations.
Tirika Beach Lodge lived up to its name, and is now the place I'll dream of when wishing to get away from it all. This enclave of warm waters and people not only dishes up epic kayak adventures but also the best dhow watching you can imagine. I can't wait to come back!
We rented kayaks from Tirika Beach Lodge and took a leisurely paddle out through the crystal clear waters. Shortly after leaving, it started drizzling while the sun was still out, cooling us off. The light was spectacular and the scenery was magical! Will be returning again.
