Zanzibar has excellent hotels, both in Stone Town and on the beaches.  We always recommend that visitors combine a short stay in Stone Town. to explore the history  and architecture of the isles’ cultural heart, with a stay on one of the beautiful Indian Ocean beaches.  The east coast of Zanzibar Island (Unguja) features several establishments on the beach, ranging from small and intimate properties to larger resort outfits.  Further afield, great lodges can be found on Pemba and Mafia, and smaller islands such as Chumbe and Mnemba.
