As well as being one of Africa's greatest safari destinations, Tanzania also has 800 kilometres of dazzling Indian Ocean coastline - not to mention tropical Zanzibar and the other exotic islands that aren't far offshore.

The beaches are some of the best on the East African Coast with exceptionally fine sand and deep turquoise waters. There are also world-class dive sites which will thrill scuba divers and snorkelers. Honeymooners will love the exclusive beachfront lodges, while parents will appreciate the range of family-friendly accommodation and available activities.

If you’re looking for island getaways off Tanzania’s coast, the best options are Zanzibar, Mnemba, Pemba, Mafia, Chumbe, Chloe and Ras Kutani. Please give us a call for your own tailor-made, luxury itinerary to one of the most stunning coastal regions in Africa.
