Northern Zanzibar is an eclectic mix of guesthouses, bars, restaurants, mid and high end hotels. For an evening social scene, this is the part of the island that rocks. The bars, restaurants, beaches and hotels all sprawl into one another, giving the area a festive vibe.
The beaches are not as extensive as those on the East Coast of Zanzibar, but there is no barrier reef in the north. Allowing for easy direct access to the ocean even as the tide retreats, a great location for all water sports. The diving and snorkelling is very good all along the north coast, with exceptional dives around Mnemba Atoll. However, the dive boat trips from Nungwi to Mnemba can be quite long.
For romance and pure luxury stay in a sumptuous villa at Kilindi Zanzibar, with its no child policy it is perfect for a carefree honeymoon.
