Zanzibar Islands Archipelago Destinations

Zanzibar Islands Archipelago Destinations Boat on the beach

 

Zanzibar Islands Archipelago Destinations beach holiday options are many, but broadly, the island can be divided into six holiday destinations: Stone Town Main capital City, Nungwi in the north, The East Coast, The South-east, The West Coast, and a few offshore islands like Thanda Island, Mafia Island, Mnemba Island, Fanjove Island and Pemba Island.

Two or three hours’ drive from Stone Town, the village of Nungwi marks the northernmost tip of Zanzibar. Surrounded on three sides by turquoise-blue ocean, Nungwi has long been a magnet for visitors seeking paradise. Some come for some good diving and beaches, and proximity to a lively village where there's always a lot going on.

Zanzibar’s East Coast is lined with long, powder-white beaches. To the north, numerous small resorts boast similar beaches, yet all are quite different. Offshore you're find the magical exclusive Mnemba Island – the ultimate island lodge for those who can afford it!

Continuing along Zanzibar’s South-East Coast, the beaches remain stunning: powder-white sand with a barrier reef, lots of palm trees and a significant tidal range. The villages become a little sleepier and more relaxed as you head south, and Jambiani, in particular, is very relaxed indeed: for an authentic visit to a friendly village, you can't beat it.

In south-west Zanzibar, the Fumba Peninsula is a very laid-back and friendly corner of the island, with two good lodges, while offshore is the award-winning eco-resort on Chumbe Island.

A 30-minute flight north-east of Zanzibar Island, Pemba Island is comparable in size, but far more traditional in outlook, and tourist numbers here are tiny. Apart from a handful of honeymooners, most come for the diving, which can be excellent – although it’s really best suited to advanced divers.

Equally magical, although not part of the Zanzibar Archipelago, is the Mafia Archipelago. More remote, and quieter, than many places on Zanzibar, Mafia Island offers some superb diving and snorkeling in its own marine park, served by just a few small lodges.
