This spot, like many others in Zanzibar, has great potential and often really good waves, but local knowledge of the spots and conditions are almost crutial in really scoring a good day out.
This spot is the definition of a tropical surf session. The stage is a palmtree riddled coast line and crystal clear 27° water. The reef is about 1km out. The outside section of Dongwe Doughnuts has a great right hander that often barrels when the winds are from the north or north west. It breaks over a shallow but flat reef that make the waves super hollow for about 20 metres. The inside section has mellow soft waves for beginners and intermediates and the bottom section breaks over sand.
