Relax and unwind on beautiful beaches in Uganda

Beaches? In Uganda? Yes. Uganda may be a landlocked country but there are some wonderful beaches around Lake Victoria. After adventuring hard, what better than to relax and unwind on a sandy shore? Paradise!

Ssese Islands

After touring Uganda on safari drive, take some time to relax on the golden sandy beaches in Kalangala – part of the 84 islands that make up the beautiful Ssese archipelago. Enjoy a ferry to Bugala Island, go for a canoe ride on Lake Victoria and take a cultural stroll to important sites around the island.

Victoria Forest Resort

Located on Bugala Island, one of the islands that make up the Ssese archipelago, Victoria Forest Resort is a secret haven for anyone looking to relax. Go for a nature walk in the forest and look out for the primates and birds that call it home. Explore the historical sites on the island, including the Speke house, while discovering the history behind it.

Pineapple Bay

Located on Bulago Island, Pineapple Bay is a small paradise and the perfect getaway. Covering 500 acres, its shoreline of rocky outcrops and low cliffs provide shelter for fish, otters, and Monitor lizards. Enjoy a nature walk in the island’s rainforest and look for forest birds. Discover the crops supported by the rich fertile soils such as pineapples which the lodge is named after.

Lakeside Adventure Park

Meanwhile, if you find it difficult to sit on a beach and do nothing but relax, Lakeside Adventure Park, on the shores of Uganda’s Lake Victoria, is the perfect spot for you. It is conveniently close to Kampala and can be reached by road or by boat.
