    Zanzibar is amazing beyond belief. Nungwi is one of the top beaches in the world. The crystal sand makes the water even glow.

    Nungwi is the most popular beach in Zanzibar because the tide does not go out much and the water is always perfect.

    Parts of the year are busier than others, parts of the beach are busier than others. If you like it busy, you can have a great time with everyone. If you want more peace and quiet, you can have that too.

    Someone mentioned the beach boys being annoying while trying to sell you things. Honestly, buy as much as you can. You will wish you had when you go home and miss everything. You will wish you got more to give to friends. You won't realize it till you are home. I wish I purchased so much more! I am glad I am weak to saying no and that I purchased a little from each person who asked me!

    If you want to know the different between tortoise and turtles visit prison island and then mnarani acquarium.most tourists confuse in their reviews btwn turtles and tortoise .
    I really liked what the locals do here taking good care of the turtles.
    What i didnt like is tourists swimming with them.feeding them is ok.

    Not on Nungwi Beach. You can take a local taxi for about $10 roundtrip from the beach area. About $7 and you can swim with the turtles, which are being rehabilitated.

    This is an exceptional dive center with a professional and competent staff who are also friendly and fun. The dives were all interesting and the dive master was great at finding so many different things I never would have spotted. Florian is very helpful and shares a lot of interesting information as well. I highly recommend them!

    I am an experienced horse rider and my horse riding tours in Zanzibar were absolutely amazing!!!
    The Zanzibar horse club is welcoming and each member of staff is treating every horse with kindness and respect.
    My first tour was a swim tour along a spectacular beach. My horse (Buzz) was quite keen to swim and seemed to enjoy it :)
    My second tour was a 1h30 min ride on the beach with Jackson as a guide. It's been a while I haven't had so much pleasure riding a horse, Buzz again ! Thanks to very low tide we had the chance to gallop full speed and Buzz loved it as much as I did !! Thank you Jackson for such a great ride, I will come back for sure :)

    This was the next activity we did in Zanzibar as we got opportunity to see more of the island. The buggy itself is very fun- an activity we will do again when we come back to Zanzibar. The guide, Babu, is very helpful and fun as well.
