Zanzibar is the land where fantasies of a perfect beach come to life. It’s pristine, romantic and surprisingly accessible.
The beaches of Zanzibar genuinely boast that Hollywood combination of white sand for miles and deep turquoise-blue water. Not only are the beaches divine but Zanzibar is relatively secluded, considering how easily accessible it is. And as well as a wonderful African beach experience, a trip to Zanzibar is ideal for those seeking historical and cultural experiences with their dose of beachside luxury.
WHERE TO STAY
Zanzibar’s luxury accommodation scene has gone from strength to strength particularly in the past decade. Now there is something for every shade of luxury holiday.
Families can enjoy private time in the all-villa Baraza Resort and Spa (Book Now). For easygoing relaxation, a great beach and plenty of pampering, there’s Breezes Beach Club and Spa with 71 rooms, including 20 suites and 11 garden villas (www.breezes-zanzibar.com).
Zanzibar International Airport is very well connected with major airports around the world. It is only a few kilometres away from Stone Town and it is quiet and efficient. Most nationalities get visa on arrival but you do have to stand in line to get your photo taken for the visa. The visa officials accept all international credit cards.
