The central east coast of Zanzibar features a long and broad white beach fringed with palm trees that stretches for miles facing the lagoon.

Like almost all the island it is subject to tides but this fact has not prevented its radical development and some of the largest hotels of the island can be found right here: Mapenzi, Coral Reef, Dream of Zanzibar, Blu Bay, Melia Zanzibar, Sultan Sands, Veraclub, Ventaclub, Neptune Pwani Beach to name a few ... These hotels do not really respond to the style we like however, should you wish so, we can book them for you.

We prefer Instead to recommend the area Pongwe, further south, with its small bays and particularly Pongwe Beach Hotel or alternatively Shooting Stars which has managed over the years to preserve its  small size and quiet and serene atmosphere.
