... is a peninsular of land just to the south of Stonetown on the south-west coast of Zanzibar Island off the coast of Tanzania.

Despite its relative proximity to the metropolis and the airport, this place feels really quite remote, there being just one lodge at the tip of the peninsular and relatively little other development.

The beaches down here, backed by mangrove forest and some enormous baobab trees, are not of the classic white sand that one sees elsewhere on the island, but they are virtually deserted other than the occasional local fisherman.

Offshore lies the substantial Menai Bay Marine Park, which includes some very lovely small islands and sandbanks, perfect for lazy days out on the boat and fabulous picnic lunches. The marine park attracts day-trippers from across the island, but to best enjoy this area it is worth staying locally to take full advantage.

There is excellent diving, snorkelling and sailing in the area, but kite-surfing is not usually available. Day-trips to Stonetown are relatively easy, but other parts of the island, such as Jozani Forest, are too distant. There is no night-life here.
