Zanzibar is an island off the mainland of Tanzania. It is part of the country of Tanzania. In Swahili, Zanzibar is called Unguja. Furthermore, the island is also called the spice island with a rich culture and history for you to visit and explore.

Zanzibar Island is around 50 kms away from Tanzania mainland and is on the Indian Ocean. Moreover, it consists of many small islands and 2 major islands called Unguja and Pemba Island. The capital city of the group of Island is Zanzibar City which is also the historic Stone Town. The town is also a World Heritage Site.

Additionally, Zanzibar Island consists of white sandy beaches that are pristine used for scuba diving, snorkeling and many other water activities.

Colonization

Portuguese invasion and control of the Swahili Coast in the late 16th century ended the golden age of the archipelago. Although, the Omani Arabs returned to power less than a century later. Today, many of the winding streets and high townhouses of old Stone Town remain unchanged. And You can walk between the sultan’s palace, the House of Wonders and the Portuguese fort. Also, you can also walk through the gardens, the merchants’ houses and the Turkish baths of the old city. Day-long spice tours to working plantations offer visitors the chance to observe the cultivation of cloves, vanilla and nutmeg. You can also observe cinnamon, and other spices that have made the island famous.

Zanzibar’s coastline offers some of the best beaches in the world. However, sand and surf vary depending on what side of the island you’re on. On the east coast, waves break over coral reefs and sand bars offshore. And low tide reveals small pools of starfish, small minnows, and anemones. Up north, ocean swimming is much less susceptible to the tides. And smooth beaches and white sand make for dazzling days in the sun.

5 Days Zanzibar Island is the best island in Tanzania with white sandy beaches that are pristine used for scuba diving, snorkeling and many other water activities.
