I am planning a trip to Zanzibar for the end of May/beginning of June. Which, as I understand, is the end of the rainy season. We are looking at staying at the Pongwe Beach on the east side and Matemwe Beach on the northeast side of the island. I read that many places are closed on the East side during that time because of the rainy season. Our group is interested in doing some site seeing but mostly we want to hang on a beautiful beach and do some snorkeling.
Can anyone share with me what we can expect as far as the weather is concerned and if it would be better to look at different areas of the island during that time as well as what you think of these hotels? I would be really greatful for any insight.
