walking distance of the full moon party

Hi, Can someone help ? planning a trip to Zanzibar in June, which places in Kendwa area are quieter but within walkig distance to the full moon party ( want the best of both worlds !) We are students and on a budget but will have a small splurge somewhere during our trip

Have seen reviews of rocks and suset on TA but still interested in which to choose ?

also is there any advice about other places eg Duniani , les toits de palme, and ? white sands or other less reported on places ?( eperiences and costs vs the more well known places)

Any ideas on things to do( snorkelling/scuba/canoes/places to visit ) and an idea of costs would be great .

Finally is there public transport from Stone Town /the airport to Kendwa ?

How easy is it get around the island ? Thanks and looking forward to getting your advice.Mel

June is starting to pick up the season.

All places at Kendwa Beach are closed to each other,so no area which is quite than other.

The full moon party is on step of your foot,the long distance is almost 7 minutes to walk.But will be a next door if you will be at

Kendwa Breezes ( 5 Minutes)

White Sands Beach Bungalows (4)

Sunset Beach Bungalows ( 1Minute)

Kendwa Rocks (Place of the party)

I do recommend Sunset Kendwa beach Bungalows,they have different rooms categories which Suite all Budgets.

White sands and other which you have mentioned are less reported because of their Standard,White Sands was good when it was managed by Mzungu (European),but it is currently under local Management and they aren't doing very well but is very cheap.

There are so many Diving Centers at this Area:

Just view at www.zanzibarwatersports.com

There are shuttle Buses leaves from Stonetown at 10h00 and then afternoon from 14h00 - 15h00.

Just go to the entrance point of Old Fort and book it from there.Also there is a board shows sharing Buses infront of the Door.It Costs US$ 15 per person.

But my Advise:if you are more than 3,is better to take a private transport which is US$ 40 if you will bargain.

The problem of Shuttle bus is a delay,they wont leave till they get enough Tourists to go there.

I Always don`t recommend local buses,it costs US$ 1.5 per person to get to the North Coast,but you will be dropped off at the main road,so you will have to walk for about 15 - 20 minutes to get there.Also it takes time to wait for passengers at Local Bus Terminal.

From Stonetonw to Kendwa is 1 hour good driving in private transfer,but it can takes 3hrs for local buses.

Thanks for this information. Do you know the Duniani or the Toits de palme ? If you were putting all of these places to stay in order of preference how would the list look ?

Do you think we need to book in adance ? We often get a better deal just truning up but we will be there over the full moon period .BW Mel

Would be interested in other people's views on these things as well.M

Yes, I know them but are less of standard.

Duniani is much better,

June is not a pick season,you can go straight and select the best option you like.

Yes is on the same stretch of the beach party.Just 3 Minutes walking interval.

Is new compared to the oldest Toits .

Will get room at that time of the party.But be aware that these are small Hotels,so one small group can occupy the whole Hotel.

But hard times are Augusts and Decembers

This is a monthly party and all local people and Tourists from Town are going and back to their place of residence.

There is no specific clients who are going there and overnight there for just a party.
