Zanzibar is one of the most magical places on earth! That’s quite a bold statement, but once you’ve been, you’ll wish you never had to leave. The island has a vibrant energy about it with bright, colourful communities, picturesque architecture, and aged buildings. The Dala-dalas putter along the worn streets as food market vendors fill the air with delicious aromas, and the dhows return from a day at sea with their catch.

This is why we love Zanzibar!

One hotel that our Travel Experts recommend is located on Nungwi Beach, a gorgeous stretch of white-sand beach with crystalline waters that will make you feel like you're truly in paradise. Due to its prime location and all-inclusive offering, the Hotel Riu Palace Zanzibar makes the perfect Zanzibarian retreat for any kind of traveller.

Nungwi beach is hands down one of the most beautiful in Zanzibar with breathtaking serenity. From the turquoise waters, sandy beaches and sumptuous seafood and local dishes, Nungwi beach is simply the place to be. Located about 56 km north of Zanzibar Town on the Nungwi Peninsula, it’s roughly an hour's drive from Stone Town.
