Enjoying the beaches and culture on Zanzibar
If a trip to a paradise island in the Indian Ocean ranks high on your wish list, book a flight to Zanzibar and discover this laid-back island off the coast of Tanzania.

And don’t miss out on a boat trip. Get on a ‘dhow’ (a traditional boat) and watch how fishermen haul in the catch. Looking for next-level dining?

The heavenly beaches of Nungwi
On the immaculate beaches near the charming village of Nungwi, you’ll get a taste of paradise with a fresh fruit cocktail in your hand and your toes in the sand. Enjoy the leisurely atmosphere and amble down the beach to the lighthouse. In the evenings, Nungwi harbour is the stage for a beautiful spectacle. Dozens of fishing boats with lowered white sails head towards the setting sun. What a magnificent sight!

When to go
Curated for you
Idyllic beaches, lush forests and historic architecture: what you see in Zanzibar above the surface of the ocean is just the beginning. Take a dive under the water and the Indian Ocean will reveal an aquarium full of bright colours. The water is always around 27 degrees Celsius and visibility is excellent ─ sometimes up to 60 metres.
ARTS & CULTURE
The old soul of the tropical island of Zanzibar is rooted in Stone Town. While the rest of the island developed over the years, little has changed here in the last 2 centuries. It is a magical place, perfect for exploring on foot. Stroll through narrow, winding alleys, bustling bazaars and mosques and enjoy the beautiful architecture.
