This is the end of 2 Days Zanzibar Beach Vacation
The best time to visit Zanzibar is from June to October during the cool, dry months of spring.
Another popular time to visit this tropical island is from December to February when it’s hot and dry.
There are two best times to scuba dive off the coast of Zanzibar, in July and August and in February and March. Diving off the north coast is particularly good from June to October and off the south coast between November and March.
We don’t recommend visiting Zanzibar during the two rainy seasons, from mid-March to late May and again in November.

Zanzibar International Airport: located in historic Stone Town, the only airport on the island is served by flights from Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. Once you have arrived, take a taxi to your accommodation or enjoy the services of your hotel’s shuttle bus.
There are regular flights from Zanzibar Island to Pemba and Mafia Island, but a boat transfer would take you from Zanzibar to Mnemba or Chumbe. Motorbikes and scooters can be hired for an easy and fun way to get around the island though the streets of Stone Town are for walking only
- Zanzibar East Coast: home to the island’s best and most idyllic beaches, the east coast is home to a wide range of lodges and hotels but the tidal aspect of the Indian Ocean may mean you have walk to go swimming or snorkeling.
- Zanzibar North Coast: as a rule, the further north on Zanzibar you go, the more private and less crowded the beaches are. The north coast is also least affected by the tidal range.
- Zanzibar North-east Coast: the island’s prime location, most of Zanzibar’s top-end accommodation is set on the north-east beaches. The diving is excellent here, there’s not much tidal variation and the archipelago’s best reefs of Mnemba Island lie about a kilometer or half a mile offshore.
- Zanzibar South Coast: the further south you go on Zanzibar, the more populated it becomes. And with people, comes culture – head south for cultural and spice tours along with more opportunities to engage with the locals.
- Zanzibar South-East Coast: there are plenty of beaches and resorts on the south-east of Zanzibar but the tidal range is more marked than other regions.
- Zanzibar West Coast: there are fewer lodges on Zanzibar’s west coast and it feels a little more remote but it is, of course, home to Stone Town, located on the island’s central-west coast.
- Stone Town: Zanzibar’s historical capital No visit to Zanzibar would be complete without exploring the narrow, cobbled streets of Stone Town, a World Heritage Site and former capital of the main island. Absorb the history, culture and cuisine of this former slave and ivory port on guided tours, or simply wander around at your own pace
Accommodation in Zanzibar tends to be a blend of the relaxed and the exotic. There are many excellent hotels, boutique establishments and fully inclusive resorts situated on the island’s famous beaches but several fine hotels can also be found in heart of fascinating Stone Town, Zanzibar’s historical capital.
Often combined with a Tanzania safari, Zanzibar is nevertheless a holiday destination in its own right. Dive or snorkel teeming coral reefs, swim with dolphins, explore the nooks and crannies of Stone Town, embark on a Spice Tour or simply laze on the beach – with the right choice of Zanzibar accommodation, all of this and more is possible.
If you’re looking for something a little more remote and unique during 2 Days Zanzibar Beach Vacation, then why not try one of our handpicked lodges on Zanzibar’s neighboring atolls? Pemba Island, Mafia Island and private Mnemba Island all offer exclusive, luxurious and intimate accommodation, perfect for honeymooners or romantics
