Most clients include 1 or 2 nights in Zanzibar’s historic Stone Town before heading out to the beach. There is plenty to do in Stone Town as well as shopping (spice tours, forest tours, trips to various offshore islands and swimming with dolphins) although the beaches around Stone Town are awful. The best beaches are to be found on the North or East Coast. All of Zanzibar’s beaches are extremely tidal.
The best hotels are either the , (at $250) or the much smaller ($150). Cheaper options include the Tembo, Dhow Palace or (each about $120) which provide good value for money and are more charismatic; though slightly shambolic at times.
