Located at the eastern part of the island, at Jan Thiel Beach, you can find the charming Zanzibar Beach & Restaurant. As the name implies, the bar and the restaurant radiate warmth and coziness of East Africa. Zanzibar Beach & Restaurant is open every day of the week from 8:00AM till at least 11:00PM for breakfast, lunch and dinner. During the whole day, enjoy a good cup of coffee or cappuccino, a cool smoothie, a refreshing beer, a soda, cocktail or delicious mixed drink. Rent a comfortable beach bed or a lounge bed and enjoy a relaxing day on the beach. If you would like to escape the heat of the sun, our beach offers shade under one of the many palm trees. Toilets and showers are available.
