Located just off the coast of East Africa, Zanzibar is a Tanzanian archipelago which oozes natural beauty.

This gorgeous honeymoon destination is made up of many islands, including the two main ones, Unguja and Pemba Island. Often referred to as an ‘unspoilt paradise’, Zanzibar islands offer the most tranquil settings for newlywed couples to wind-down in. The beaches are famed for their beauty and offer a vast array of water sport activities for honeymooners to enjoy.

Couples can enjoy snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing, scuba diving and sailing on a trip to almost any of the beaches in Zanzibar.
