Bagamoyo is steeped in history, the name meaning 'Loss of the Heart' as a result of it being a terminus for the slave caravans from inland. At the peak of the slave trade in the mid 19th century it is estimated that 50,000 captives arrived in Bagamoyo each year. Now a popular beach destination, the town lies only 70km from Dar on good tarmac road. There are several mid-range beach hotels available. The Kaole Ruins, dating from the 12th century Shirazi era, also make an interesting excursion.
Sunbathing has become popular on the beaches of Tanzania, as that is one thing that Tanzania has in abundance of, the Sun.
Relax on the beach, with a cocktail in hand, while getting your body to the perfect bronze. Do make sure to apply suntan lotion though, or else your tan might turn to a burn, which would likely make the rest of your holiday an unpleasant one.
