Best Places To Stay On Zanzibar Other Islands

Out of the hustle bustle that Zanzibar can sometimes attract, sit a few permanent islands which are a perfect exclusive getaway. For those not seeking complete exclusion, there are also islands which are often used for day trips out in a sailing boat. There is lots to be enjoyed in and around Zanzibar, it is just knowing what suits you!

Chumbe Island

Chumbe Island is Zanzibar’s first marine sanctuary and remains a unique destination for very keen snorkellers.  It is an education over load of marine life and being home to 90% of East Africa’s coral species really gives it a different angle to your typical beach experience.  Getting there can be a bit of a mission, with the boat transfers going at set times so it sometimes doesn’t really favour tight flight connections.  But it is a lovely eco lodge for a certain type of person and being 100% run by locals it is a pure African beach experience.
