Nungwi village is the most lively beach spot in Zanzibar. It’s located in the most northern tip of Zanzibar Island. Due to its wonderful location – good diving, perfect sand beach and a possibility to swim even during low tide.
Nungwi is the biggest village in Zanzibar, and therefore there are many hotels, restaurants and shops. There are also special acitivities such as the natural aquarium, where the turtles from fisher nets are brought back to heal.
From Nungwi you can find anything between the most budget hostels to the most luxurious beach resorts.
NOTE: Don’t book tours through beach boys. They are not the same as tour companies – they don’t pay taxes and have zero responsibility if something happens or the tour doesn’t come true. Also, their knowledge is mostly not on the required level. Please support the lawful businesses and book through dive centers or tour companies.
