Historical Stone Town Is the Cultural Center of Zanzibar
Stone Town is recommended for all who visit Zanzibar. It’s the cultural hub where you can find everything from historic sites to international and local restaurants, to excellent shopping for anything you might want. Hotels and Airbnbs are available for all budgets.
The most popular evening spot in Stone Town is Forodhani Gardens, with plenty of street food and cozy cafes. It gets busy around sunset and continues until around 11 pm.
Stone Town was built from coral stone during the 19th and 20th centuries, and it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000. Because Stone Town is protected, you can explore the town just as it was when the sultans ruled.
