Beaches of Zanzibar

From 1500 eur

Relax on fine sandy beaches and bathe in azure-blue water in this exceptional spot where four diverse cultures meet.

Welcome to the melting pot of four cultures –- African, Arabian, Persian and Indian, which blend together here in a predominant aroma of vanilla and cardamom. The aroma flows straight from the lush mangrove forests of the interior, cloaked in fresh herbs. From the thicket of the jungle emerge alabaster beaches with water so clear than you can’t stop yourself from jumping in. Add mouth-wateringly large prawns, an undiscovered underwater world and a dose of  the tropical sun and you have a recipe for the perfect holiday.

Exploring Stone Town

Mapa Impreza Zabytki

Welcome to Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar. The variety of cultural influences and architectural styles is simply stunning. This birthplace of Freddie Mercury is also full of charming bazaars and crooked narrow streets, so let yourself get lost in the colourful crowd of Arabic-style houses and rub shoulders with ornate Indian balconies and latticework… Then stop for a cup of delicious, coal-percolated coffee and listen to children reciting lines from the Koran.

Where to go in the evenings? We highly recommend the Forodhani Gardens, a place illuminated by oil lamps and where you can have barbecued octopus or shark meat on skewers and a glass of sugar cane juice…. As you can see, the local food is mix of cuisines originating from different parts of the globe.


Beaches of the Eastern Coast

You spend the next few days on one of the most beautiful beaches in Zanzibar. During the day we recommend sunbathing on the alabaster sands, splashing around in the turquoise water or snorkelling in the company of multi-coloured fish… The evenings you can spend playing beach volleyball, soaking in the sunset from a dhow boat or doing whatever you have a desire to do on such a paradise island. 


The idyllic beach of Nungwi

You will be picked up by our partner who will take you to the next paradise location. A 5 kilometres stretch of sandy beach fringed with luminous blue water. With a glass of mango juice in one hand, a hunk of barracuda in the other, discover the true meaning of “chillout”.

In the evening a romantic trip on a dhow towards the setting sun.


Goodbye, Stone Town

Stone Town

A hotel in the heart of Stone Town designed in traditional Zanzibar style with its own small private beach. Enjoy a pina colada in the swimming pool and have an relaxing ayurveda massage. There is also a courtyard perfect for an afternoon cup of tea to the accompaniment of soothing music.

Bungalows on Paje island

This resort is located on the south-eastern coast of Zanzibar, in the village of Paje. Together with the stylish, African-designed rooms, there's a swimming pool where you can always get a refreshing drink at the bar. Just a stone’s throw away, scuba-diving and kite-surfing classes are held. When you get hungry, we recommend ordering a meal from the Arabian pavilion. 

Guest house in Nungwi

In the very north of Zanzibar island with access to the most beautiful beaches of Eastern Africa. You will be staying in one of the traditional bungalows in the heart of a lush tropical garden. Each room is air-conditioned, has a comfortable bed with a mosquito-curtain and its own balcony facing the garden. You can use the resort's swimming pool whenever you want and, between times, take a trip on a dhow or do a certified scuba diving course.


Among many other things, Tanzania is famous for its food. It is the homeland of kisamvu -– local vegetables with rice, bamia – meat stew served with okra and mchicha,– a form of curry with the addition of peanuts.
