Trip Planner: Africa / Tanzania / Zanzibar Archipelago / Zanzibar Island / Zanzibar City / Stone Town / Nakupenda Beach
Snorkel and swim with dolphins at Nakupenda Beach, a wide stretch of white sand gently sloping into turquoise waters. Rent equipment from the beach's diving center and venture into the waters to see the multicolored marine life. Alternatively, take a boat cruise or go reef game fishing. You can play with and feed tortoises and watch peacocks in the lush greenery behind the beach. Tents on site prepare fresh seafood dishes.

I have no words for this place as it was so beautiful to see the clear sandbank, the water was green/blue. You have to wait for the tide to go away I order to be able to have like a small picnic... more »
We took a private boat there. The waters are clear and the sand is lovely on this sandbank just off the coast, not measuring more than probably a couple of hundred metres long. It was very busy though, which not only made it quite noisy, but meant a lot of rubbish was being blown in to the sea. We went snorkling but the coral appeared to be dying/dead and there wasn't a great deal of fish to see sadly.
Awesome, went there at around 4 pm and left 2 hours later. Definitely a recommendation. Looks like paradise.
