The Zanzibar Archipelago consists of two large islands surrounded by numerous smaller ones. The breathtaking archipelago is one of the most stunning tourism destinations in the world. The island is home to pristine beaches, lush green forests, and vibrant cities and towns. Here are some hidden beaches that tourists must visit in Zanzibar.
Bwejuu Beach is probably the most relaxing beach that Zanzibar has to offer. The island’s coasts are lined with palm trees, and it is quite close to Stone Town. If you want a quiet and peaceful day, and yet want to have opportunities to engage in exciting activities, Bwejuu has much to offer. The beach offers reef safari, diving, and snorkeling. You can also visit Jozani forest, the home of the infamous Red Colobus Monkey.
For tourists who want to experience some lively aspects of Zanzibar, Nungwi Beach is the perfect place. It has a cocktail of great nighttime activities provided by various pubs, restaurants, and nightclubs that will make you feel like you’re having the best night of your life. The beach has other unique aspects, like dolphins, green turtles, and whale sharks. Do not forget to take a boat ride to witness one of the most memorable sunsets of your life. You can also enjoy an exhilarating jet ski ride while enjoying the view of the crystalline ocean. Parasailing is a bucket list experience for adventure seekers. Nungwi is a top location for this as expert guides are available to help tourists and ensure that you enjoy a safe and fun-filled experience. You can also enjoy a spa holiday at the Zanzibari, a boutique hotel, which provides luxurious accommodation on this stunning beach.
The Michamvi peninsula can easily be found on the central east coast of the island. It has two of the best and biggest resorts that the area has to offer, along with pristine, almost endless stretches of beaches that you can stroll upon at your leisure. The Michamvi beach is split into the Michamvi-Pingwe and Michamvi-Kae. Michamvi-Kae faces the beautiful Chwaka Bay, one of the most beautiful sights your eyes can see. Michamvi-Pinge has a lively coral lagoon as well as hidden coves lined with palm trees.
Beautiful resorts and awe-inspiring sights have their own attraction, but all regions are brought to life by the people who populate them. If you want to interact with locals and see how their life works, you don’t need to look further than Matemwe beach. The beach is lined with fishing cottages adorned amongst the palm trees of the region. Matemwe Beach also has some great opportunities for scuba diving, sailing, kitesurfing, and snorkeling.
The extraordinary experience of snorkeling amongst the colorful coral reef of the heavenly Mnemba Atoll is a great experience. Mnemba Atoll is one of the top most spots in Zanzibar because of its unmatched beauty. While snorkeling, tourists can spot marine creatures such as white moray eel, flounders, sea stars, octopuses, rays, and pufferfish!
If we tried to list all the beaches in Zanzibar, the list would never end. Zanzibar is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and perhaps also the most unique and extraordinary. Visiting Zanzibar should be on every travel lover’s bucket list.
