Nungwi is a large coastal village located on the north shore of Zanzibar off the coast of Tanzania. Although the settlement isn't as large as others on the island, Nungwi serves a bustling hub of activity for tourists looking to escape the rat race and enjoy a spectacular resort holiday. Nungwi boasts some of the best beaches in the world, with plenty of places to kick back and enjoy some sun, surf and sand. The island is still quite traditional, so expect to see fishing boats crossing the horizon and plenty of local customs and festivities.
The perfect place to retreat to if you're after a beach resort break, this village also lets you get out and explore of Zanzibar and mainland Tanzania. Once you've pampered yourself rotten and savoured the delights of the resort itself, book a place on a chartered boat to other destinations along the island coast, or head back to the African mainland to savour the sights of more Tanzanian cities.
