Zanzibar has more than 25 beautiful, white, palm fringed beaches, the sea is warm, and the atmosphere is easy. Zanzibar lies approximately 25–50 kilometers (16–31 miles) off the coast of mainland Tanzania. The Zanzibar archipelago consists of many small islands including two big ones, Pemba Island & Unguja.

Tanzania- Zanzibar

There are several beaches one can visit in Zanzibar. You’ve come to the Indian Ocean to sink your toes into coral sands as pure and pale as caster sugar – and the place to do that is Nungwi, on the northwesternmost tip of Zanzibar. There’s a DoubleTree Resort by Hilton here, plus a few lodges immersed in tropical gardens, beach cottages and sea-view restaurants, yet the place has not fallen victim to swarms of international tourists, and islanders mingle casually with visitors. The water sports are plentiful, as are sundown cruises, and you can organise deep-sea fishing excursions in search of leaping sailfish and mean-looking bull dorado.
