Bwejuu

...

... is a section of the south-east coast of Zanzibar Island off the coast of Tanzania.

This part of the coast features a magnificent white-sand beach which runs continuously for 20km, backed by stands of palm trees and fronted by a stunning coral lagoon with a fringing reef around 1km offshore.

Amongst the palm trees lies the substantial village of Bwejuu, a traditional settlement which retains a good deal of easy charm, whilst also showing significant signs of modern development.

To the north the main feature is out in the lagoon, where there is a significant deep-water inlet know as the Blue Lagoon, a very well-know site for snorkelling and diving.

There are lots of accommodation options dotted here and there up the coast, the best generally being in the quieter and more remote northern stretch.

In terms of activities, the area is very strong for kite-surfing, sailing and reef-walking, but diving and snorkelling are not as strong as in the Matemwe to the north. It is a little too distant for day-trips to Stonetown, although the Jozani Forest is within relatively easy reach. There is virtually no night-life here.

The whole of the Bwejuu area is now backed by a sealed highway, which may be a lot less quaint than the old dirt track that used to wind its way through the palm trees, but which is considerably more efficient.
