Best Places for Snorkeling In Zanzibar

  • Safari Blue

This is the best full day snorkeling tour in Zanzibar. And we always do this tour at Menai Bay Conservation Area in Fumba beach village which is located south west of Unguja Island. This bay is extensively covered with beautiful coral reefs, Mangroves forest, and different attractive fish species which give best experience to the Snorkelers. We highly recommend travelers to go to this place for the best snorkeling experience and having fun for their Holiday. Safari blue is not just snorkeling, but visiting Kwale Island, relaxing on the sandbank, having seafoods, fruits and so on.

  • Mnemba Island Snorkeling

Mnemba Island is located on the northeast coast of Zanzibar (Unguja) at Matemwe beach village. The Island is known as Mnemba atoll. This place is hundred percent best for travelers who only need to do Snorkeling, not other activities. There are so many kinds of fishes here compared to other places in Zanzibar, because fishing is forbidden. So, you will find different sea creatures like Starfishes, Moorish Idols, Lionfish, Snappers, Green Turtles and some time you may spot dolphins, especially during early morning.

  • Nakupenda Sandbank

Also you can do snorkeling at Nakupenda Sandbank which is located 1.2 km from Stone Town beach. 

If you are staying or planning to stay in Stone Town, and you are on budget, then you should go Snorkeling at this place instead of Safari Blue and Mnemba Island. Because you will not spend money on transportation.

  • Prison Island
