A small collection of islands 50 kilometres off the coast of Tanzania, the beautiful Zanzibar Archipelago is bursting with culture and history with its idyllic backdrops of white sandy beaches and palms swaying lazily in the sea breeze. Based on Zanzibar’s history from Portuguese, Shirazes, Brits and Arabs, there is no place comparable in its diversity than Zanzibar. Unguja, the biggest island of the archipelago is what is commonly known as “Zanzibar” with its capitol Stone Town, which is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also known as the Spice Island. Pemba the smaller sister island in the North of Unguja is still very natural and underdeveloped for tourism but offers a few hotels and surely one of the best dive and deep sea fishing sites in the Indian Ocean. The Archipelago of Zanzibar is truly a spectacular place to visit and to explore and provides “the right spot to be” for all types of travellers.
