#1 of 53 in Outdoors in Zanzibar City
Snorkel and swim with dolphins at Nakupenda Beach, a wide stretch of white sand gently sloping into turquoise waters. Rent equipment from the beach's diving center and venture into the waters to see the multicolored marine life. Alternatively, take a boat cruise or go reef game fishing. You can play with and feed tortoises and watch peacocks in the lush greenery behind the beach. Tents on site prepare fresh seafood dishes.

  • This place is one of the best places we visited in Zanzibar. The Beach/Island disappears when the tide is high and comes back when it is low. Put it to your list with turtle island tour.  more »
  • We were there at the beginning of October 2019. Gorgeous place, crystal clear water, you can snorkel seeing fish, corals and starfish. All made even more magical by the tide that covers and discovers the beach. Our guide, Saleh (255 778 423 866) also organized a barbecue on the beach based on lobsters, squid, shrimp, octopus, without really missing anything. Tip: insist, better to combine the Nakupenda excursion with Prison Island on the same day ;-)
