Know More About Beach Holidays


Beach holidays  are perfect for people who just need time out to relax to recharge their batteries.

Zanzibar Island Beaches

With its location, barrier reef and outstanding beaches Zanzibar can offer all of the attractions that most crave such as scuba diving, glorious beaches, fresh seafood and much more. For those that are a little restless there is a small forest in the interior called Jozani that has indigenous red colobus monkeys, and the spice tours in one of the small farms just outside
Zanzibar Town are a fascinating glimpse into why this island has become so famous. Zanzibar Island is much more than a stopping point on an itinerary, and can be seen as a destination in itself. What the island offers is a unique combination of outstanding beaches, along its eastern edge, interesting activities, such as visiting a working spice farm, and the cultural delights of Stone Town, with Arabian fortresses and minarets. Eastern Zanzibar Island beaches In general, the eastern beaches are lovely but the tides go out a long way making swimming difficult in many places at low tide. Some of the beaches in the east (especially more southerly) can often be strewn with seaweed. If there is a small amount, good lodges tend to clear it up each day, but it can’t always be avoided (especially around December to February). Chwaka Bay is fringed by mangroves and this adversely affects the water and sand quality in the immediate region.
Northern & northwest Zanzibar Island beaches these are the least tidal so often the best choice if you want to be able to swim in the sea all day. However, because of this, these are some of the busiest areas, especially around Nungwi. The north-eastern beaches are still affected by tides.
Southwest Zanzibar Island beaches in the southwest tend to be more coral cliff than sandy beach, but there are some sandy coves. Swimming, snorkeling and diving are good here, although the best snorkeling and diving is near Mnemba Atoll on the east of the island. Alternatives to heading for Zanzibar Island include chilling out on other, smaller Indian Ocean islands off Tanzania, such as Mafia or Pemba, or exploring the mainland coast, also known as the Swahili Coast. Tanzania is a wonderful choice for a beach holiday.
