The beaches in this region are protected by off shore coral reefs and have fine white coral sand
It is characterized by beautiful, white, sandy beaches edged with coral reefs, forests, and the magic historic Stone Town – possibly the only ancient town in East Africa that is still functioning. Zanzibar archipelago is approximately 35km off shore from the Tanzania mainland and only six degrees south of the Equator.
It is comprised of two main Islands, Unguja (also called Zanzibar Island), and Pemba, along with many smaller islands and atolls. These provide miles and miles of palm lined beaches and colorful coral reefs perfect for diving or just soaking in the laid back atmosphere.
Stone Town and its port are predominate in the west coast, with the beaches of Mangapwani and the slave caves visible at low tide are less than half an hour drive. You should also spend a night or two on the East or North cost is well rewarding of the extra hour drive to get there. The Chole Island Marine Park next to the Stone Town, and nearby Prison, Grave and Snake Islands, form a refreshing day trips and splendid break from exploring narrow streets of the old city.
South coast of Zanzibar is reserved for Menai Bay Conservation Area, protected area for the endangered marine species that come to breed on the island.
