About the neighbourhood
Matemwe beach offers fine white sands and remains reasonably unspoiled with much less sellers and touts than other areas.  Each day the tide changes twice. In low tide time swimming is impossible and the beach turns into desert full of coral flats where it is possible to easily walk to the reef which is around 1km away. You will pass a line of seaweed farms with local woman wrapped in traditional kanga paddling in the sand and harvesting the seaweed. Further down local fishermen sift through the shifting sands looking for a fisherman's spread of seafood.
