Chapwani Private Island


... is located in the Stonetown North area on the west coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

Situated 4km north of Stonetown harbour, this lovely little island has fine sandy beaches, interesting coral formations including a tidal swimming lagoon and an historic cemetary.

The lodge here is small and pleasant, with several bungalows lining the main beach looking towards town and a large main area which straddles the centre of the island.

Chapwani Private Island is somewhere with which we have a long association, but unfortunately it is not somewhere that we often recommend.

The primary problem is that the island is far too close to the busy port of Stonetown to offer a genuine tropical island experience.

And before swimming here you might like to take a look at the UNEP reports on the water quality in the bay.
