Zanzibar is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, just off of the coast of the mainland Tanzania. It consists of many small islands and two large ones, namely Unguja and Pemba. Unguja – the main island, informally referred to as Zanzibar – is the largest and most popular island of the archipelago, while Pemba is more remote and less visited by tourists.
Zanzibar is the ideal destination for an exotic beach holiday, characterised by its magnificent white sand beaches, fringing coral reefs, warm turquoise ocean and rich cultural heritage. It is home to the renowned Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an intriguing old city of narrow, winding alleyways and stone coral buildings, full of atmosphere and immensely beautiful. The weather is near perfect all year round, with sunny summers and warm winters, and the locals are as friendly as they come.
