Holidays in Zanzibar

Among experienced tourists, Zanzibar is known as the “African Maldives” – clean sand and amazing waters of the Indian Ocean, complemented by African colors, will give the tourist an unparalleled paradise vacation. And contrary to popular belief, Zanzibar is not an island, but an archipelago, with two large islands of Unguja and Pemba. And it is Unguju that is meant when they say Zanzibar. The island has a developed tourist infrastructure, many attractions and is not yet very popular among domestic tourists.

Those who choose Zanzibar are mostly interested in beach vacations. And all the brochures focus on the beaches, for example, Kendwa beach on the northern coast of Zanzibar is very popular. If you have planned just such a holiday in Zanzibar, pay attention to the fact that on most local beaches the ebbs and flows are very pronounced. The sea literally runs away from the shore for hundreds of meters, exposing the wonderful littoral. A piece of the sea remains in its hollows, and in these mini aquariums, marine inhabitants continue to live their own lives, it is very interesting to watch. Low tides are sometimes long in time, so if you like to swim, book a hotel with a pool.

As for local attractions, Stone Town is the largest cultural attraction in Stone Town. Stone Town is the central part of the old city, and is rightfully inscribed on the World Heritage List, and is protected by UNESCO.

Also, many tourists go on an interesting excursion – Prison Island prison island. Although the real name of the island is Changuu. This prison used to contain escaped slaves. Today, the most significant attraction of the island with the prison is a colony of giant turtles. At one time, turtles were brought from the island of Aldabra, they took root perfectly, and a trip to them is a must-have item for the entertainment program for many tourists.

In addition to a lazy beach holiday, on the island tourists are offered kiting, diving and surfing as entertainment. Of course, diving does not compare in beauty with diving in the Red or Caribbean, but quite interesting.

Eating in cafes and restaurants of Zanzibar is significantly more expensive than cafes in India, Sri Lanka, Thailand. Lunch for one person, which includes the first and second course, will cost about $ 15-20 without drinks. And alcohol in Zanzibar is a separate issue, keep in mind that this is a Muslim country, and alcohol is not sold at all in ordinary stores. But in the cafe for tourists alcohol, of course, is served.

Those tourists who are tired of civilization will definitely like Zanzibar. The hotel, of course, will be an oasis of comfort and coziness; outside the hotels, everything is not so rosy. And by the way, given the possibility, albeit very small, of malaria and yellow fever, vaccines against these diseases are best done before going to Zanzibar.
