Tanzania Beach Holidays & Vacations

Between July and February the weather is generally excellent off the East African coast of Tanzania. Zanzibar Archipelago has some of Africa's best beaches: gorgeous, long stretches of fine white sand fringed by palm trees. You'll find a wide variety of hotels and lodges: something to suit everyone from luxurious, all-inclusive resorts to 'barefoot luxury' private islands and simple, inexpensive beach retreats. Zanzibar is actually an archipelago consisting of two large islands, Unguja (Zanzibar Island) and Pemba, plus several smaller islets.

Zanzibar Island is steeped in Arabic history and is famous for its exotic spice industry and stunning white sand beaches. Historic Zanzibar Stone Town has the main port of Zanzibar and is the main trading center. It was home to the Omani Sultans and colonial administrations as well as the current leadership. Stone Town is a world heritage site and well worth a visit.
