We will head to East coast for the island’s best beaches – picture miles of white sand and turquoise waters. East coast is more quite but it’s for a good reason – the beaches are much better, and it’s nearby the island’s best dive spots.

The best snorkeling and diving on Zanzibar is at Mnemba Atoll. Mnemba Atoll is a beautiful reef with strong currents, so it’s the perfect place to try drift-diving.

Opportunity to see big sea life like ghostly white puffer fish, turquoise parrot fish, grouper, small, white moray eel, unicorn fish battling, and sea stars.

Plenty of me time to enjoy beautiful resorts, clear waters and beautiful white-sand beaches are what you can expect, sunbathing, chilling-out, or partaking in the great choice of water sports on offer. What about some snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing or sailing?
