Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches and the island offers a wide range of budget friendly holiday accommodation options. The crystal clear waters offer the perfect launching pad for wading on the sandbars at low tide, a diving safari or even basic snorkelling.
Enthusiastic divers must try visit Chumbe island – a marine conservation island – which offers superb diving and snorkelling opportunities – albeit not much of a beach due to the coral rock along its shoreline. The more adventurous can indulge in kite-surfing as the eastern side of the island known for its fair share of wind.
But the simplest day trip is just one of walking from one beach to another, stopping to taste seafood cooked by locals’ right on the beach. Several small islands just off Zanzibar Island also offer a very romantic and secluded option.
