With cool and dry weather, spring (June to October) is when Zanzibar is at its best. If you love scuba diving, then book your holidays anytime between June and August. November to March is another good time to enjoy natural beauty and water sports at the archipelago.

Eating Out

Zanzibar is an exciting place for epicureans. The archipelago brims with a wide range of dining venues serving local as well as international delicacies. While hedonists can enjoy stylish dining at the ritzy restaurants, travellers on limited budget have scores of eateries and food stalls to satiate their cravings as well. Stonetown, Michamvi, Paje, and Nungwi are some of the places known for their great dining opportunities.

Shopping

Love shopping? Zanzibar has plenty of options for you. Head to Stone Town for beautiful textiles, handmade jewellery, knick-knacks, and intricate wood or stone carvings. The Spice Island offers some of the finest spices in Tanzania. Markets at the south east coast are popular for selling high quality handbags, sandals, clothes, and laptop/notebook covers.

Popular Zanzibar Resorts & Hotels

When it comes to accommodation, Zanzibar has something for all. Well-heeled travellers buying luxury holiday packages can choose from the world-class properties located at popular tourist areas. Some notable options include Double Tree by Hilton Resort Zanzibar - Nungwi, Zanzibar Palace Hotel, Essque Zalu Zanzibar, and Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa.
