Beaches in Zanzibar

Zanzibar Beach Idylls
Sun-bleached sands, jade waters and palm trees burnished gold by the tropical palettes of eternal sunshine make the Zanzibari coastline a Paradise regained.

And as is fitting for an archipelago nourished and founded by its splendid maritime isolation, so the fruits of the Indian Ocean continue to bewitch and nourish today's maritime adventurers.
Development is afoot, however, and whereas ten years ago, there were only a handful of guest houses on the whole island, the Government has embraced mass tourism, bringing large resorts and charter planes along with it.
