ZANZIBAR HOLIDAYS

The Indian Ocean is home to East Africa’s Spice Islands, the enchanting Zanzibar, which is our jewel of the Indian Ocean. Surrounded by stunning white powder beaches and a barrier reef, Zanzibar is the one of our favourite beach escapes. Long palm fringed stretches of beach, some of the best diving in the world, seafood like you have imagined, what is there not to love about this exotic island!

WHY TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS LOVES ZANZIBAR

“Exotic Zanzibar mixes its heady scent of spices and ramshackle winding alleys with glorious white sands, contemporary beach resorts and shabby-chic hideaways – it’s perfect for a post-safari chill-out!” - Sue, Product Director

WHY GO ON HOLIDAY TO ZANZIBAR

Beauty - The crystal blue waters combined with exotic forestry make these islands stand out, and in impeccable style! Stunning warms waters, tropical utopia, history and culture have given these islands a wonderfully rustic, yet luxurious charm to them, and they are unspoilt island paradise as a result. This, like the Swahili coastline, with its barefoot rugged twist, is the perfect escape from reality and enjoy time away like you never have before.

History & culture - Known as the ‘spice islands’, as traditionally these were some of the biggest suppliers of spices in the world, were the trade centre between Europe, Indian, Arabia and Africa, which in turn has seen these foreign influences all become a key part of their heritage and culture. A trip to Stone Town (their capital) will paint you the full picture!

Safari beach - Although the islands and beaches of East Africa do not need a spouse for your travels, you can’t ignore that East Africa is also home to two iconic safari destinations, Kenya and Tanzania. These two iconic destinations are home to ‘Out of Africa’ experience you have always fantasised of.

TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS RECOMMENDS

1. The Residence Zanzibar - A member of the 'Leading Hotels of the World' portfolio, The Residence has 66 one and two bedroom private pool villas spread across the resort's 80 acre private estate in Zanzibar's south-west corner.

2. Kilindi - Wonderfully positioned on the north-west coast of Zanzibar (an hour from Stone Town), in a sweeping bay with 500 metres of power white sand beachfront, Kilindi is one of the best examples of authentic luxury eco-chic to hit Zanzibar’s shores in recent years.

3. Fundu Lagoon – Set on a beautiful beach on the south-west coast of Pemba Island, a short hop north of Zanzibar, this remote and secluded island hideaway defines twenty-first century Robinson Crusoe shabby-chic.
