Ultimate guide (October 2021)
is a secluded beach in the east of Zanzibar
island, - not far from Mnemba islet famous for its outstanding snorkeling. The sea goes far away during low tides. But this is a great time to look at the marine life on an exposed bottom. And anyway, there will be a period of high water during the daytime. Along the coastline, there are many palms turning into the forest, from which often come pretty animals looking like lemurs. As for the sand, it's totally perfect - white, soft and without pebbles. In the water, it is better to be in coral slippers, in order not to hurt your feet and not to step on sea urchins. Shore and seabed: sand, stones.  Find hotels in Kilimajuu

How to get there
