... is a section coastline to the north-east of Zanzibar Island off the coast of Tanzania.

This part of the island features an absolutely stunning coral lagoon, with mile upon mile of broad white-sand palm-backed beaches. Amongst the palm trees at the back of the beach lie traditional fishing villages, where the interesting local culture can still be observed. One of the highlights of a visit is to watch the daily comings and goings of the local fishing fleet.

Around 2km offshore, just beyond the main reef, lies the world-famous Mnemba Atoll, surrounded by pristine and very accessible coral reefs.

Tourist development in the area is relatively light, there are no large resorts and no coastal highway, all of which serves to make the place feel a little bit more of a backwater than much of this East Coast.

In terms of activities, the area has probably the best diving and snorkelling on the island, plus some excellent kite-surfing, sailing and reef-walking. It is a little too distant for day-trips to Stonetown or the Jozani Forest. There is virtually no night-life here.
