is a section of the coast of Zanzibar Island
We divide it into four distinct areas ...Nungwi
... is situated on the northern cape and is one of the most heavily developed areas of the coast, with a very wide range of accommodation from simple guest-houses to large resorts. There is good access to the island's best diving, plus the possibilities of a little night-life.Kendwa
... is up on the north-west of the island and contains perhaps the best and least tidal beach on the island, although this is now backed by heavy resort development alongside the original guest-houses. There is decent diving in the area and a chance of some modest night-life.Fukuchani
... is a little-visited sector of the north-west coast which only has one small accommodation option.Stonetown North
... lies on the west coast and contains some interesting lodge options, notably on the small islands offshore from the town, but all a little bit too close to town to generate that relaxed beach feeling.
