Being a beautiful country, Rwanda is popularly known as "the land of a thousand hills" has many beautiful lakes and numerous rivers with astounding beaches. Rwandan beaches are excellent to spend an entire relaxing day, lazing around and enjoying with your honeymoon, holiday or vacation here. The environment is cool to enable your refresh and clear stress from you.

The Rwanda’s largest lake is Kivu; it is the largest freshwater Lake in the Rwandan valley which is extremely beautiful inland sea area. The three amazing resort towns include Gisenyi, Cyangugu and Kibuye which are located on the shores of Lake Kivu. Gisenyi is the most famous resort town with three sand beaches. This Rwandan beach is excellent and has many swaying palm trees and hotels near by. This beach has sauna bath, sun tan, swimming and beach club facilities and every year thousands of tourists visit this place. However, one needs to check out with the local residents about the sea conditions since there are dangerous eruptions of volcanic gases quite often so swimming during those times might be very risky. After Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes national park, it’s better to transfer to Lake Kivu to relax for great memories.

The Gisenyi resort is far away from the din and bustle of the town and hence is excellent for relaxing and spending idle hours in nature's lap. As a result the Rwandan beach on Lake Kivu is a favorite with most wealthy people of Rwanda and tourists.

On Kibuye, tourists can enjoy the experience of a modern lakeshore guesthouse. This Rwandan resort on Lake Kivu provides an enjoyable experience to all tourists and has stunning beaches. Rwandan beaches are ideal for relaxing as they are very serene and have a calm atmosphere all around.

The best time to visit Lake Kivu is all year round – come to swim, relax, boat cruise, sport fishing, bicycle riding, horse riding and athletics among others.

You can make choice of your accommodation: choose luxury, deluxe or budget basing on your budget and interest.
