About Zanzibar

Zanzibar - General information

 

Zanzibar, the spice island and refuge for old pirates, still has the charm and the fragrances of its past. The cultivation of spice and cloves, started in ‘800, is still present and leaves sweet suggestions of cinnamon, ginger and cardamom in the air.
 
The city of Stone Town with its typical narrows passageways, colorful market, wonderful white buildings made with white hydrated lime and coral limestone, and wood inlay front doors decorated with Indian and Arab patterns will leave you with your mouth open!
 
The blue of the Indian Ocean hugs this paradise on earth with a wonderful coral reef that divides the deep waters from the calm and shallow that wash the white beaches shaded by short palm trees where, in their shadows, you can relax.
 
It’s difficult not to fall in love with this island and with its friendly residents with their nice, kind manners.
