Matemwe Beach Village
is located in the Matemwe
area on the northeast coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
Matemwe Beach Village is a good quality beach guest-house is set at the back of an enormous white-sand beach above a stunning coral lagoon. It is a long-established favourite, relatively low cost and attracts a nice mix of guests. There is a pleasant main building, a lovely pool area and 21 guest rooms of various specifications. The dive centre here is second to none and there is a wide range of marine and other activities available.
The main potential downsides at Matemwe Beach Village are the in village location, the potential for variable service levels and drawbacks with room design. The beach is not private, is very tidal and the lagoon contains seaweed and sea-urchins. Excursions to the south of the island are a little distant and there is very little night-life in the area.UpsidesActivitiesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
