Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, Tiwi Beach is truly a hidden gem that will melt your heart from the very moment you step on its white, powdery sand. This hidden gem of paradise offers crystal clear waters, calling you to take a plunge, and swaying palm trees serve as your escape from the midday sun.
However, Tiwi Beach is both about lounging and relaxation, but it is much more than that. This is where the colorful marine animals residing in the Tiwi Africa Pool can be explored. Snorkel or dive in a rainbow of coral reefs full of tropical fish, or take a boat trip to see dolphins leaping and playing in the waves.

As the sun goes down, go to one of the beachfront resorts that are intimate and treat yourself to the ultimate spa session. With Shian Safaris, you’ll find the real meaning of serenity in this gem of a coastal haven.
