White dream beaches of white sand bathed by crystal clear sea, palm trees swayed by a light wind and a coral reef to be explored by diving among the colorful fish.
A pearl immersed in the Indian Ocean, whose landscapes are the most surprising aspect together with the colors of nature. The beaches of Zanzibar are white and white and thanks to the clear waters the ocean turns into a clear turquoise pool.
Zanzibar is an archipelago in Tanzania off the coast of East Africa, in the Indian Ocean. In its main island, Unguja, familiarly called Zanzibar, lies Stone Town, an ancient trade center with Swahili and Islamic influences. Among its winding lanes rise minarets, sculpted portals and nineteenth-century buildings, such as the House of Wonders, an ancient palace of the sultan. The northern villages of Nungwi and Kendwa are characterized by wide beaches dotted with hotels, small guesthouses and bed and breakfasts.
Kiwengwa: s located on the east coast of the island of Zanzibar (considered the most beautiful of all) and is the largest beach on the island. Most of the resorts, hotels and villages share the private part of the beach. In addition to this, however, there is also a whole public area, with free access, frequented by both tourists who want to save a little, and by the locals, who never give up a day of relaxation in the sun and a dive into the crystal clear ocean waters. The low tide reveals new horizons and makes an endless and colorful beach emerge from the waters.
Nungwi: it is one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Africa, with soft white sand and a dream sea. Zanzibar is subject to the tidal phenomenon, but here in Nungwi it is possible to swim all day. On the beach you can easily come across groups of artisans who build dhows here, typical Zanzibarian boats, made entirely of wood and with an elongated and unusual shape. On dhows you can go hiking and swimming offshore in search of the coral reef.
Kendwa: located near Nungwi, 60 km from Stone Town, the capital of the island, enters the ranking of the most fascinating shores of Zanzibar for that long and deep strip of sand that forms the beach, along with coconut trees, mangroves and the nearby coral reef where you can spot myriad tropical fish and make close encounters with the turtles. From this beach you can enjoy wonderful sunsets and meet fishermen and women who clean freshly caught fish. As Nungwi, (which is only 2.5 km away) in this part of the coast of Zanzibar is not affected by the phenomenon of the tides, the beach and the sea are perfect at every hour of the day to enjoy a bath, both with high and at low tide.
Paje: it is a beautiful kilometric beach that takes its name from the homonymous village, 50 minutes away from Stone Town. Very white and quiet, it is also worthwhile spending the evening, illuminated by the moon and in complete silence to enjoy the beauties of Zanzibar nature and the starry sky of Africa to the last.
Jambiani: stretches for kilometers with its fine white sand and the blue sea, lined with coconut trees that give shade to the edges of the beach. On this beach the Maviko ya Kamumbi are buried, heaps made with coconut shells and left buried up to 6 months and then used to obtain the fibers used to make ropes. The low tide game here transforms the landscape and the horizon, giving rise to mounds of sand and majestic shells
Matemwe: it is located in an area of the island still not too touristy, more difficult to reach, becoming an ideal destination for those who want to lie in the sun and enjoy the enchantment of Zanzibar, immersed in a heavenly atmosphere.
Recommended for relaxation: The beaches of Paje and Matemwe are ideal for those who want to enjoy the sea of Zanzibar pole pole, slowly, as the island's inhabitants say, where the pace of life is slowed and calm.
Recommended for sports: From Jambiani and Kendwa you can take dhows and reach the reef to go snorkeling and spot octopus, tropical fish, sea urchins and starfish.
Recommended for fun: In Kendwa there is a great selection of restaurants and places to stop and have a drink along the promenade.
Also known as Al Kuh Dra, this island of Tanzania, located about 50 km north-east of Zanzibar and about 50 kilometers from the coast, a little less than 70 kilometers long and 20 meters wide, impregnated with Swahili culture, is surrounded by beaches of fine white sand. Its hinterland is dominated by plantations of cloves (of which the island, for centuries, was the largest producer in the world) and of coconuts. The cultivation and trade of these products, together with the young tourist industry, are the architrave of the local economy. Visiting Pembra you can explore a glimpse into Tanzania that is not yet contaminated by mass tourism.
Also known as Chole Samba, this island rises from the crystalline sea just 25 km from the coast of the African continent. Together with Zanzibar and Pemba it belongs to a group of islands sometimes referred to as the "Spice Islands". The island has about 40,000 inhabitants, primarily fishermen. The coasts and seabeds surrounding the island are a true paradise that attracts an increasing number of tourists. The name "Mafia" derives from the Arabic morfiyeh ("group" or "archipelago") or from the Swahili mahali pa afya ("healthy place").
The best time of year to spend holidays in Zanzibar and its Mafia and Pemba archipelago is from mid-December to mid-March and from June to October. Zanzibar and its beautiful beaches are located near the equator, the sun is present almost all year round and makes Zanzibar an ideal place for holidays.
If you want to stay on the Tanzanian coast and get out of the usual patterns and classic sea destinations you can choose the town of Pangani which is about 500 km from the city of Arusha and 380 km from Dar es Salam. At about 50 km from Tanga you will find very white sand, deserted beaches, small cozy resorts along the beach of Ushongo, a destination reserved for the few travelers in search of sea, relaxation and tranquility in a place that is still not very crowded for now.
