Description

Pineapple Bay Resort is found on Bulago Island in Lake Victoria. It is the perfect place to unwind after a safari, walk on the white sand beaches and explore this tropical island. The eight large chalets have a terrace to relax on and soak up the views.

Pineapple Bay is located on Bulago Island, in Lake Victoria. Covering 500 acres, Bulago Island is a small paradise away from the hustle of urban life. Surrounded by the lake, its shoreline is made up of rocky outcrops, low cliffs and long white sand beaches. Around the shore, the soil is highly fertile and tree-covered. The north-east tip of the island contains a small portion of rainforest and the bird-life on Bulago is second to none with over 300 different species of birds.

Take off your shoes, wrap yourself in a soft colorful kikoy and unwind. Relax by the pool, overlooking the lake or take the opportuinty to hike around the island and climb up to one of the two peaks to get unrivalled views over the whole island. Spend a day out on the lake to try and catch the rare Nile Perch fish. One evening, wander round to the west coast of the island and watch the sunset behind the other islands dotted around the lake.
