I love Uroa Bay because you can still feel that you are in Zanzibar and not in a 5 star Hotel with all conforts, you can still see the villages and the local people hw they live witch make this place special

Having bought a plot of land 8 years ago my husband and I now have began to build a holiday home in Uroa a more perfect place can't be found anywhere else . The people are friendly and hospitable beaches perfect and the ocean waters calm warm and the most fantastic colours of blues and green.
