Beach destinations

Located just below the equator, Tanzania (Tanganyika and Zanzibar) offers a multitude of white sandy beaches and tropical islands. As those are quite close to the parks, Tanzania is the perfect destination for a parks / beach combination.

If the notoriety of Zanzibar, its old town and its history, its white sand beaches, its diving sites, is no longer to do, the other islands, as well as the continental beaches has a lot to offer too.

The reputation of the ocean idien is no longer to do, and whichever destination chosen, diving and snorkelling will be rewarding: the island of Mafia, and its marine park, the island of Pemba, and its chamber under the water in the middle of the sea, the private islands in Fanjove, Chumbe or Mnemba, ...

Sea turtles are nesting on Tanzania's beaches, and depending on your travel dates, you will be able to discover their hatching. The experience of swim along the largest fish in the seas, the whale shark, is as well unforgettable, and seasonal.

If the continental beaches are not as white and blue as those of Zanzibar, they might attract you when you'll know that you'll enjoy them almost on your own.

Finally, the shores of Lake Tanganyika, at the extreme West of the Tanzania, offers absolutely unspoiled beaches, and unusual dives amongst cychlides. A real off the beaten track beach destination.

South Coast of Tanzania
