10 days sun, sea & sand

10 Palmfringed white sanded days

10 days of  pure joy on Zanzibar’s beautiful paradise beaches. White sand, palm trees and turquoise sea. Luke warm evening breezes evening and sweet ripe exotic fruit in endless variations.  exotic fruit. Barefoot bars and sea treasures.

We stay in Jambiani on the southeast coast and end with two days in the mysterious, soulful Stone Town. Jambiani – where the exotic beach meets village life in an authentic, beautiful and friendly atmosphere. On the beach we can walk barefoot and discover cozy bars and restaurants hidden among the palms. The wonderful warm turquoise water is right at our feet. When the tide goes out, rivers form between the sandbanks where we can soak up the feeling of paradise for hours.

The village of Jambiani has a relaxed traditional African lifestyle mixed with Zanzibar culture, colorful and filled with laughter. Men are playing bao, women embroiders hats and the children play on the beach. 
We have cherry picked the Stone Town cake and collected the most soulful impressions of this unique UNESCO World Heritage site where winds of history’s pass in the narrow alleys. A unique dinner at the best roof terrace with 270 degrees sea views, Stone Town behind the scenes and the diamond  Kholle House-filled with antiques from India, Oman, and Zanzibar trade routes.

Day 4

Day 4 Snorkeling and BBQ at Pungume Sandbank – Full day
This is the paradise in paradise-one of the most idyllic places on Zanzibar. A small patch of sand in the middle of the Indian Ocean – a crescent shaped sandbank that comes up at low tide with amazing clear waters and unparalleled views. The reef around Pungume is one of the best in Zanzibar and we stop for snorkeling and discovering the colorful underwater life. On the sandbank we set up a BBQ as the captain with crew cooks us lobster, freshly caught fish and calamari, etc. For the rest of the day we will sunbathe and swim in the little still bay. Make sure that the camera batteries are charged for they will go warm out on the sandbank. Read more about Pungume
