Nungwi and Kendwa
Zanzibar is famous for its stunning white beaches, the azure Indian Ocean and a coastline lined with swaying palm trees. Nungwi has picture postcard scenery and eptomises Zanzibar's relaxing and truly romantic feel, perfect for a honeymoon safari or as a relaxing end to a busy and action-packed mainland Tanzania safari.
There are a variety of activities available from Nungwi, from scuba diving and deep sea fishing to sunset dhow cruises and dugout canoe trips through picturesque mangrove swamps. There is also the opportunity to make cultural visits to neighbouring islands and sites of historical interest.
The beach locations are split into two lively and popular areas - the North Coast which includes Nungwi and Kendwa, and the East Coast including Chwaka Bay and Bwejuu. Each has its own particular attraction and charm, and all have the same beautiful white sands and access to the incredible blue Indian Ocean.
The advantage of the Nungwi area is the fact that you can swim at any tide and the sea tends to be a lot calmer then on the East Coast. Kendwa and Nungwi probably have the best beaches on the main Unguja Island. There are several more remote and less visited beaches, some located on other more exclusive islands. Zanzibar (or Unguja as it is actually called) as the main island attracts the most visitors, but the other islands such as Pemba offer quieter and highly exclusive beaches and lodges.
