Zanzibar Island is a jewel in the ocean, surrounded by beaches that rate among the finest in the world. Here you can swim, snorkel or just lounge the hours away while shoals of luminous fish graze over nearby coral gardens and pods of dolphins frolic offshore.

Originally settled by the Persians and Arabs, the island has captured the imagination of many explorers and traders for centuries, turning it into a major route for traders on the high seas.

With its mixture of vibrant cultures Zanzibar offers wonderful selections of cuisine and traditions for all.
