Zanzibar Nungwi

This is one of the most popular beaches in Zanzibar, and what was once a small ram shackled fishing village has now become a hub of activity.

With the areas main income coming from fishing and seaweed farm, the beach is likely to stay an exclusive and quite destination for holiday makers looking for quiet escape.

Zanzibar Kiwengwa

Boasting beautiful stretches of white sand beach, it’s easy to see why this resort has become one of the most popular on the island. In recent years there has been development in the area but there are still quiet stretches where hotels including the Blue Bay beach Resort are located, offering a peaceful spot with perfect views.

Mombasa south coast

The south coast of Mombasa is littered with undeveloped and unspoiled beaches, complete with turquoise waters and perfect white sand. Head for Malindi and the Islands for the picture perfect beach with plenty of snorkeling and diving – a perfect way to pass the time on the sundrenched stretch of coastline.

Mombasa North Coast

The north coast is equally as beautiful as the south, also boasting beautifully clear waters and pristine beaches. It is home to the Mombasa Marine National Reserve, making it a great spot for diving. The north however is subject to seaweed being washed up on the beach.
