Domwe Island

The tents are situated in secluded spots around the beach area- perched on rocks. Guests can also bring their own tents and pitch them on the wooden platforms. The island is perfect for a group or for a romantic few days away.

Accommodation Feedback

On our 2nd night there were 16 people staying which I felt was too many for the facilities, otherwise I would have rated it 'great'. The appeal was that it was remote so didn't expect it to be so busy.

We kayaked there from Cape MaClear. Karion and Felix were wonderful hosts - found us some fresh fish and barbecued it for us. Charming place.
