The Beach

The beach is small but has lots of activities to offer. Snorkeling and scuba diving are some of the popular ones. Nearby to the beach there is also a turtle sanctuary where injured turtles and other marine creatures are kept and taken care of. Once, the turtles are healed they are released into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Nungwi is also known to be the “dhow building capital of Zanzibar”. It is a wonderful place to see the “traditional craftsmen at work on their boats and watch the dhow fleets heading out for fishing during mid afternoon”. To get to the place, you just need to arrange for an inexpensive shuttle from Stone Town or you can drive in a hired car or a motorbike”.
