Bungalow Beach Hotel Craft Market, or BB Bendula for short, was established back in the year 1975 to formalize the activities of women selling their home made baskets to tourists on Kotu Strand beach.

Then an international organisation donated purpose built market structures adjacent to the beach. This Bendula was later extended in size in 2009 to allow for a new total of 41 craft stalls.

You can find wooden drums, necklaces, African tie dye clothing and hats, paintings, calabash gourds, balafons, and even stuffed toys, sunglasses, baseball caps.

Go down the Badala Highway and down towards Kotu beach. The Bendula market is just after the Kombo Beach Hotel on your left.

Opening Hours:
8am till late depending on each owner.
