With a name literally ending in ‘bar’, it’s safe to say that Zanzibar has quite the happening nightlife.

From street markets to beach bars, there’s always something fun to do after dark. Here are a few of our top choices of beach bars in Zanzibar that offer not only delicious drinks, but also a wonderful location, welcoming atmosphere, and spectacular views.

The Jetty

Essque Zalu Zanzibar Hotel’s ‘The Jetty’ is one of the best places on the island to enjoy drinks while watching the turquoise blue waters of Nungwi. Set al fresco on the shoreline, The Jetty offers diners a taste of modern Arabic cuisine, often to the tunes of live local music.

The Rock Restaurant

Perched on a coral outcrop in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean, The Rock is arguably the most famous restaurant in Zanzibar. At low tide, you can wade to the restaurant through a few metres of shallow water, and at high tide, a small fishing boat takes diners to and from the shore. It is renowned for it’s extraordinary location and views, as well as it’s fabulous food and drinks.

Gerry’s Bar

Ideally located on a tranquil beach in Nungwi, Gerry’s Bar is a friendly and laid-back beach bar, and the perfect spot to enjoy an ice-cold cocktail with friends, whilst admiring the sunset. Gerry’s Bar often hosts live music beach parties and is loved for its vibey, relaxed atmosphere.

Kendwa Rocks

Kendwa Rock Bar

Kendwa Rocks offers a beach party every Saturday night with music and entertainment, but it is most famous in Zanzibar for hosting the Full Moon Party. The Full Moon Party is organized around the full moon every month (usually on a Saturday, but not always). Attracting a large crowd of locals and travelers alike, the Full Moon Party offers a delicious grill, amazing acrobats and fire eaters and great live music to keep you dancing all night.

With these options and much more on offer, there’s certainly no shortage of beautiful beach bars worth a visit while in Zanzibar. For help planning your perfect holiday in Zanzibar, get in touch with us.
