5 Uniquely Romantic Things to do in Zanzibar


Zanzibar is a paradise island – tucked away from the hustle bustle of mainland Tanzania, yet not far enough to lose its Tanzanian cultural influence. 

Zanzibar has white, sandy beaches with luxurious resorts, making it an ideal honeymoon spot. 

Even if not for a honeymoon, Zanzibar is an immensely romantic place where you can escape with your significant other. 

Here are 5 uniquely romantic things to do in Zanzibar:


  1. Take a dhow sunset cruise

What’s more romantic than watching the sunset paint the sky with hues of red and orange, surrounded by the calming waves of the Indian Ocean, with the love of your life right next to you?

A dhow is a traditional sailboat that is commonly used in Zanzibar. Book your sunset dhow cruise now and enjoy the majestic views with your significant other. 

  1. Head over to Prison Island

Prison Island, also called Changuu, is an island that was used as a prison for rebellious slaves, and later, a quarantine center. Currently, it’s a safe haven for giant tortoises. It’s never crowded so it’s an ideal spot for you to get away from the crowd and spend some alone quality time at the beach of the island. Walk hand-in-hand by the shore and feel the waves crash into your feet. Bliss. 

  1. Go on a walking tour of Stone Town

There’s a reason museum dates exist: they’re one of the most romantic activities to do! Your experience of walking around Stone Town, exploring the beautiful architecture and learning about the history of the wonderful buildings, is exciting and calming at the same time – best done with a significant other!

Walk through the narrow streets, hand-in-hand, and explore the beauty that this UNESCO World Heritage site holds. 

  1. Get an adrenaline rush together

There’s nothing more romantic than teaching each other a sport and experiencing an adrenaline rush together. Explore the beautiful underwater world with your significant other while scuba diving or snorkeling. If you’re a beginner and have no prior underwater experience, snorkeling is the best option for you. 

There’s nothing like getting an adrenaline rush together and supporting each other throughout your anxieties and phobias. 

  1. Have a private beach party

What’s better than having an exclusive beach party for the both of you? That’s right! Ask your lodge/resort to arrange speakers, beer/wine, and your favorite lights. Dance the night away with your significant other and share fun and interesting stories with each other while you’re at it. Loosen up and let your inner self out. Go to a private beach where you can have the beach by yourself. Set up a camp too where you can sleep in after partying the whole night. You could even play fun and interesting card games or board games. 


So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Zanzibar and have a great time with your significant other!
