ZANZIBAR BEACH HOLIDAYS
Zanzibar beach – the name says it all. Only 15 minutes by plane from Dar es salaam, the mainland lies the wonderfully sleepy island of Zanzibar. The obvious beach tack-on to a safari in mainland Tanzania, Zanzibar beaches in East Africa’s finest beach destination surrounded by coral reefs with numerous idyllic beaches lined by huge sweeping palm trees.
Though most visitors spend a night or two in Zanzibar’s Stone Town, it is the beaches, snorkeling, and diving that attract people to Zanzibar’s shores, and with an ever-increasing tourist trade, it is remarkable.
Zanzibar is much larger than one might expect; driving from top to bottom takes about two hours. Stone Town and the airport are found on the Western edge, with a transfer from any beach lodge taking about an hour. The island’s best beaches for a Zanzibar beach Holiday are found on Zanzibar’s Eastern and Northern coastline with miles and miles of seemingly endless beaches, and a wealth of accommodation choice.
Western Zanzibar (where Stone Town is located) and Southern Zanzibar have small beaches. Zanzibar is the jewel in any Africa and Tanzania Holiday.
