Without doubt, the beaches of Zanzibar are among the most beautiful you are ever likely to come across - but they are by no means all the same. Indeed, you will find there are different types of beaches to enjoy depending on exactly where you are.

    On Unguja, for example, the east coast is the destination to make for if you dream of relaxing on idyllic white sand beaches - and this area in itself can be quite diverse. Indeed, there are near-deserted beaches where you'll come across just a few small lodges, while others are backed by much larger resort style developments.

    The west coast (where you'll find Stone Town) has a much rockier shoreline, and the bays here are much smaller. So, overall, its much less of a beach destination. Over on the southern coast, meanwhile, you'll find charming beaches that are absolutely fantastic for swimming, as well as spotting creatures like turtles and dolphins. If you do spend time on the west coast, be sure to enjoy a sunset or two here - they are truly spectacular.
