The coast of slavery, the coast of spices, the coast of exotic tales of piracy, war and strife: The East Coast of Tanzania has a bloody and fascinating history, and today, life continues little changed from that of several centuries ago. Dhows still sail the ancient trade routes and life is governed by the monsoon trade winds. This is a coast of blindingly white beaches, coconut groves, mangrove swamps, and idyllic tropical paradise, much of it virtually undiscovered by modern tourism.
From the fading grandeur of Tanga in the north to Mafia Island and Mtwara in the south, the coast of Tanzania is tropical Africa at its best. Zanzibar travel offers stylish, comfortable accommodation, with ocean views that will invite you to explore the coral reefs effortlessly. Zanzibar is also the ideal romantic retreat, where romance steals the evening with candlelight dinners and romantic private walks. Beach barbeques tantalize your taste buds with cuisine fresh from the sea.
