Best Zanzibar Beach Holidays

6 days from £650 plus international flights.

Zanzibar, the perfect place for your tropical island beach getaway in Tanzania. Whilst its picture postcard beaches are the prime attraction, there’s much more to this island than might first meet the eye.

Zanzibar evokes images of sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and turquoise waters – the perfect island paradise. It can be all that and more.  Zanzibar’s beaches are perfect for a lazy beach holiday when all you want to do is relax and recharge your batteries, but it’s also has easily accessible outlying islands, home to some world class dive sites. Throw the bustling world heritage site of Stone Town into the mix, with its colourful back-street markets, superb local cuisine and spice tours, and we’d say Zanzibar has got it covered.

It’s easily accessible from Dar es Salaam and combines well with a Tanzania safari if you wish, or simply visit it as a stand-alone destination.

Accommodation on Zanzibar comes in all shapes and sizes too, from romantic honeymoon spots, to exclusive resorts and classy boutique hotels. Families are catered for with family-friendly resorts and hotels and there are beaches with gentle calm waters for safe-swimming.
