Backpacker places in Africa
If tourism were a well established thing in the Comoros, this would be the place where backpackers would be seen chilling. The view from this little bay is absolutely superb, and there are a few pristine beaches nearby. But it's the vibe that surrounds the place that's most appealing. Locals hanging at the entrance of the bay greet visitors in a low-key, extremely friendly manner. There are no hotels, just a few (somewhat rundown) spots with cabana-style lodging, or camping options, offering home cooked meals. A few more upscale villas are the property of rich foreign people, but it doesn't affect the "hippyesk" ambiance. The area used to receive more tourists, and there are plans to get back to the level that once were, but whether it happens or not, this bay is definitely not to be missed!
