The beaches of Zanzibar are pure bliss. Warm azure waters lap long stretches of white sandy beaches, and traditional dhows (Arabic-style sail boats) dot the endless blue seascape.

Enjoy snorkelling on pristine reefs, soak up the vibrant chaos and small-town charm in Stone Town; rent a scooter and explore forests and coconut plantations; or just enjoy a cold beer while you watch the coral-colored sun set over the Indian Ocean.

Choose to stay in a luxury lodge with your own private stretch of beach, or meet new friends and travellers on the island’s busy northern beaches.


Just off the coast of Tanzania, Zanzibar island (or Unguja as it’s locally known) is a fascinating blend of African & Arabic culture. Historically, the island was a key stop on the busy trade route between Africa, the Middle East, and India, and the rich cultural mix from all of these influences is clear.

Stone Town is a World Heritage Site with historic charm, full of Arabic wood carvings, narrow cobbled streets, and small-town charm. Bustling markets and street vendors full the commercial areas and the island’s fascinating history can be seen and learnt about wherever you visit. There’s a former sultan’s palace with a clock tower, a stone amphitheatre, and underground aqueducts that fed hot water to the late-19th-century Hamamni Persian Baths.
