Generally considered to be a more peaceful part of the island, the East Coast offers laid-back beachfront lodges and a distinctly slower pace. Small, smart, personal hideaways offer understated sophistication and panoramic ocean views. Striking architecture with stylish touches; sweeping bays and secluded coves. For most people, their quintessential image of Zanzibar is its East Coast. Boasting an almost continuous expanse of palm-fringed, picture-perfect beach; it’s arguably Zanzibar’s greatest attraction.
There are several villages dotted along the East Coast, each with its unique offerings. Your hotel will be able to arrange day trips to small islands or to the coral reefs. Professional PADI diving schools offer a full range of scuba diving with professional equipment. Other water sports such as kiting, kayaking, catamaran sailing, wind surfing, deep sea fishing, water skiing, parasailing and jet skiing are also on offer. Other activities available include yoga & cycling. You can of course, just lounge on the beach or by the pool. The whole of the East Coast is affected by fluctuating tides, and can make swimming challenging at certain times.
Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island and was once the world’s leading producer of cloves. A guided tour of a spice farm is also an option from here.
