Tanzania Beach Tours – After a dusty safari, very tiring mountains or simply for escaping cold winter times, the beach of Tanzania and the off-shore Zanzibar archipelago are perfect for some days of recovery and relaxation during your holiday.
The beaches in Zanzibar are a paradise, interspersed with picturesque fishing villages, where the people live a simple way of life, unchanged over the years. There are more than 25 fantastic beach in Zanzibar, and some are so peaceful and remote that the only noise breaking the silence is likely to be the ocean.
Zanzibar offers a unique combination of outstanding beach, along its eastern periphery, exciting activities, such as visiting a working spice farm, and the cultural enjoyments of Stone Town, with Arabian fortresses and minarets. At the northern tip of the island is Nungwi, approached by a road lined by banana palms, mangroves and coconut trees.
Unlike Zanzibar Islands, Tanzania mainland offers affordable accommodations on the shore of Indian Ocean. The long coasts of Tanzania’s mainland are not regularly visited compared to its sister islands of Mafia Island, Pemba and Zanzibar just off the shore of Indian Ocean. Reasons for this might be that it is relatively unknown and the long time to travel by road from Tanzania’s northern national parks and the game reserves in the south. Slowly but surely, the northern Swahili coast with its palm-fringed beaches are developing; Bagamoyo and Pangani especially being the main attractions.
