A week In Zanzibar-Where to stay?

Hey guys!

My friend and I ( 24 yr old females) are spending the first week of June in zanzibar after volunteering and doing a safari in tanzania. We are having a hard time debating where to stay. We have narrowed it down to either Nungwi or Kendwa. And has a few hotels in mind from what we have heard. I am looking for any suggestions . here is what we are looking for :

1) a place where we can meet younger people as we want to do some partying.

2) A place where we can swim and has a beautiful beach for tanning ect.

3) A budget place but livable! lol ... we don't have super high expectations but don't want a nightmare experience

4) A place that we can snorkel or a place that will assist us in finding a place to snorkel.

Any advice would be lovely !!! thank you!!!

A place called Kendwa Rocks meets all the above requirements. Quite on budget, great beach, a lot of partying, young crowd.

I didn’t care for it too much because there was too many young party oriented travelers for my taste and the hotel standards were not up to my expectations, but my requirements were different.

Snorkeling – no point of snorkeling from the beach (no reef from the beach anywhere on the Island). You should consider a boat trip. you will be able to arrange it with any hotel.
