Zanzibar Beaches Recomendations

Nungwi Beaches

Located at the northern tip of Unguja Island Nungwi Beach is the island’s most famous stretch of sand – and for good reason. Crystal-clear waters wash upon white sand shores, while anchored dhows provide an atmospheric backdrop for your vacation selfies. Popularity comes at a price, though, and Nungwi can be overpopulated with tourists and locals attempting to sell their wares. However, those that like to be part of the action will love the beach’s atmospheric waterfront bars and restaurants, while accommodation options range from backpacker B&Bs like Nungwi House to 5-star resorts like Essque Zalu Zanzibar.

Kendwa Beach

Zanzibar visitors looking for a quieter place to catch a tan will love Kendwa Beach, located on the island’s northwestern tip. It’s possible to walk there from Nungwi at low tide and you’ll find the same white sand and turquoise waters, but with fewer crowds. Because the waters off Kendwa get deep quickly, there is less of a tidal range here than on the eastern beaches, making it ideal for swimming no matter the time of day. Its western location also means that for scenic sundowners, there’s no better place to be. Various operators offer snorkeling trips and Kendwa village tours, while Kendwa Rocks resort is known for its monthly Full Moon Party.

Mnemba Island

If exclusivity is a priority, consider booking a stay on Mnemba Island. Located off Zanzibar’s northeast shore, this private getaway is only accessible to guests of luxurious &Beyond Mnemba Island Lodge and has a circumference of just 1.5 kilometers (0.93 miles). Essentially, the entire island is a breathtaking ivory beach, studded with a patch of causarina pine forest and surrounded by protected coral reefs. The lodge’s PADI dive school offers exceptional scuba diving excursions, while private beach dinners, open-air massages and yoga sessions are all on the menu for those staying in one of the 12 thatched beach bandas. Activities range from fishing to dolphin watching.
