The term 'barefoot luxury' might have been coined for Mnemba, a formerly uninhabited island just 2.5km from the north-east coast of Zanzibar. At the centre of this 12-hectare (30-acre) private island is a tropical forest, home to nothing more dangerous than butterflies and cute, spaniel-sized suni antelope. Mnemba Island Lodge is not cheap, but with lots of space, first-rate service, and one of the best beach locations in Africa, it is very good.

Our view of Mnemba Island Lodge

There's nowhere we know of that's quite like Mnemba. That said, if you're looking for a top-end destination for a super beach holiday in an exclusive setting, then you should be aware of the possibilities in northern Mozambique, the Quirimbas Archipelago. There you'll also find private islands with stunning beaches and pristine marine life, and they're also accessible from Dar es Salaam. While their service standards generally don't yet match those of Mnemba's polished and experienced team, the islands themselves are often just as pristine and remarkable as Mnemba.
