Beaches of Zanzbiar

An alluring Holiday Destination.

On my last day in Zanzibar I had to pack and leave very fast.  An second I would have fallen in love and stayed forever.  Ever heard of the alluring bug of Zanzibar?  It is so possessive and magnetic to a degree of hypnotization.  You set yours eyes on it and forget all your cares. You want to stay forever.  Seyyid Said lingered a second longer and the next minute he transferred his capital from Muscat to Zanzibar.

Zanzibar is a special holiday destination ideal for week long stays, honey moons or weekend escapes, relaxation and adventure.  The mention of Zanzibar invokes images of dreamy relaxation in pristine palm fringed beaches kissed by turquoise waters.  The beaches of Zanzibar among the top 10 beaches of the world.  Their powder-white sand is reputed to be so fine it literally squeaks between your toes.   Of particular fineness is the Nungwi  Beach.  Located in the northern tip of Zanzibar Nungwi enjoys a gently sloping coastline with white sandy beaches stretching for kilometers as far as the eye can see.  Along the coastline are tiny fishing villages which have never changed for centuries.  Along the same coastline are award winning beach resorts.  Top of the range of the North coast holiday resorts and hotels  are Diamonds Gemma Dell Est ResortRas Nungwi Beach Hotel, Ocean Paradise Hotel, Double Tree Hilton Resort , The Z Beach Hotel, Diamonds  Star Of The East Hotel, and Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club/ Hotel
