Zanzibar beach holidays
Indian Ocean beach holidays on Zanzibar
If you are looking for a great beach holiday, to relax and unwind after a safari on the African mainland, Zanzibar might be the ideal island for you.
Surrounded by powder-white beaches and a barrier reef on the eastern side, Zanzibar holidays are also great for diving and snorkeling. There the long palm-fringed beach stretches beside turquoise waters, creating a classic location for a beach holiday.
While on Zanzibar, don’t miss Stone Town. This lively and vibrant quarter, mostly built in the 19th century, has been almost unchanged since then. You can find old palaces, mosques and many old Arab houses here, as well as some great cafés and restaurants.
