The most romantic place in Zanzibar amazing beach with the best hotels on the island. If you are searching for a high-end vacation than Nungwi and Kendwa are the best beaches on the island. Plus they aren’t affected of the tide.

The beach is completely breathtaking and has really good hotels close by. One of the best restaurants so far is Baby beach hotel. The beach is clear and great for a swim.

Beautiful beach - stunning. Good for swimming - kite surfing. Bars and restaurants which mean you don’t have to do all inclusive down the coast.

We went there for a day coming from Pwani Mchangani. We laid down on the sand under some coconut tree, Mangi's restaurant and a supermarket were. Right there. Nice beach, clear water, strong waves, kid was thrilled.
