Stone Town is for culture vultures, a maze of narrow cobbled streets lined with bazaars, mosques and museums. On the south-east coast is Baraza, one of the finest beaches in the world with a coral reef that runs the length of the coast affording spectacular snorkelling and diving. Hot all year round with shallow waters safe for swimming, this is quite simply paradise for couples and families alike.View all Zanzibar hotels
