Zanzibar Beach Break (5 days) Itinerary
Take a relaxing beach break on the island of Zanzibar. White sand beaches, restaurants, diving, snorkelling and a luxury resort - what more could you need?
Day 1 Stone Town/Beach Resort
Arrive and be instantly enchanted by the exotic allure of the 'Spice Island'. Travel to the north-east part of the island, where your beach resort awaits. If arriving early enough, there’ll be time to laze on the beach or take a dip in the idyllic waters before a first taste of Zanzibar’s spice-laden cuisine.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1
Days 2-4 Beach Resort
Explore the island and its hidden treasures at a relaxed pace. Travel deep into the interior to see the fragrant spice plantations. Discover how pods, bark, buds and berries are harvested and dried. The intoxicating aromas of fresh cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg will delight the senses and stimulate appetites, so be sure to sample the sweet tropical fruits, fresh seafood and zesty curries Zanzibar is famous for. Enjoy free time to relax on the beaches and swim, snorkel or dive in the clear, warm waters. A cocktail and a golden sunset go hand in hand, so be sure to indulge as the sun melts away and day turns to night. In the evening, wander the streets and choose a restaurant in which to kick back and enjoy good company and delicious cuisine.

Day 5 Beach Resort/Stone Town
Pick up some silver jewellery, fragrant spices or colourful clothing at the markets, or perhaps take a final swim in the tropical waters before saying goodbye to the unique island of Zanzibar.
