Places to visit in Zanzibar Archipelago

Uncover our recommended places to visit in Zanzibar, from historic Stone Town’s markets to peaceful Pemba Island’s coral reefs

Untouched white sands gleam in the sun, dhows drift on clear aquamarine waters, and rustling vegetation reveals the whereabouts of Kirk’s red colobus monkeys. The Zanzibar Archipelago may seem like a simple place to visit for some relaxation, but our specialists have looked beyond the obvious and can help plan in lesser-known places to go on your Zanzibar holiday.

In Zanzibar Island’s interior, spice farms and coconut plantations reveal its industrious side. Cinnamon and vanilla waft from market stalls in Stone Town, where winding streets link tall houses and intricately decorated sultan’s palaces. The less-developed Pemba Island has gentle green hills and coral reefs that offer some of East Africa’s best diving, while the remote Mafia Archipelago comprises islands dotted with quiet fishing villages and giant baobabs.
