Life on the “Spice Island” embodies the characteristic East African phrase of “pole pole”, meaning “slowly”. The tropical breeze, marine life, and welcoming, relaxed vibes from the local people, create a perfect destination for the ultimate beach vacation. Zanzibar, with its rich cultural heritage, intricate Islamic architecture, wild spices, vibrant fabrics, and stunning coastlines, is an essential destination for the curious world traveler.
Stone Town is the island’s most populated area, where you can enjoy winding through romantic alleyways, taking a spice tour, viewing ancient forts, or visiting the famous “Night Market” where local vendors offer fresh, unique seafood dishes at a local price. The Northern-most beaches, including Kendwa and Nungwi, offer sparkling white sand and turquoise waters, as well as a fun nightlife scene full of dancing and live music almost any night of the week during the high season. The quieter, East coast of the island hosts ample opportunities for recreation including kite surfing, snorkeling, and jungle treks, as well as provides the perfect venue for secluded beach walks and star gazing.
