Stroll along the shores of Matemwe Beach

During the day, get marooned on a private sand bank during low tide, while dining on freshly caught seafood grills and snorkelling in the shallow waters.

Dine at The Rock

Perched on a rock just off the northern shore of Zanzibar, The Rock Restaurant is one of the island’s most romantic attractions. The unique setting and delicious cuisine are complemented by the gentle murmur of waves on the rocks below, while a canopy of stars sets the scene for your intimate candle-lit dinner.

Swim with dolphins at Kizimkazi

This is one for the photo book! Head to the laid-back fishing village of Kizimkazi and frolic with friendly bottle-nose dolphins in the waves. It’s a magical experience you and your special someone will never forget.

Discover Prison Island

Just a 30-minute boat ride from Zanzibar, Prison Island is a wonderland of history, marine life and scenic beauty. Delve into the rich history of the island. Explore its pristine shores. Encounter gentle giant tortoises. Then slip into the warm waves and snorkel the colourful reef beneath.
