Zanzibar: I was once again ready for the Beach break and this time it was with a full gang , My girl gang. #7girls 1 island. Just kidding. That’s was just one of the many personal jokes we brought home back from our Girls Trip. Our trip was perfect from making Dos And Don’ts list to packing wardrobe theme wise to coordinating our luggage tags.
Where shall I began ,talk about all the girls fun we had or the beautiful Zanzibar Island? Lets do Zanzibar for today, I promise to get back to you on the fun girls trip part very soon with lots of pictures and less of writing and you will know why so the minute you see that blog!
Karibu! Welcome to the gorgeous not much spoken about paradise! Just the sound of it immediately invokes thoughts of a far off exotic destination, unchanged by time, rich with history and blessed with tropical beauty that one can cherish forever. A trip to Zanzibar, where we did lot of sightseeing, eating and a whole lot of relaxing.
Zanzibar appears in person just as it does in the photos: white sand, aquamarine waters, and sideways sail boats.
We stayed in Park Hayatt hotel Stone Town. It is the classic beachfront thotel in the heart of Stone Town, a designated UNESCO heritage site.The hotel is housed in two buildings, first one is called Mambo Msiige, a building steeped in history, dating back to the 17th century. A typical Zanzibari mansion, centered round a peaceful courtyard and beautiful ambience.
Stone Town : which is the old section of Zanzibar City, the capital of Zanzibar. And it’s definitely worth visiting even if your are staying anywhere else on the island.. You can spend an entire day getting lost in the winding maze of lanes, drinking and eating some amazing wood fire pizza, visiting the educational former slave market, spending time inside the old bazaar ,wandering through the traditional main market and enjoying a refreshing drinks on the beach at sunset. It’s a cool place to hang out for a couple of days in stone town itself.
Page Beach: The next destination up the beach is Page, here you’ll find a wider stretch of white sand, a smaller village, a lot of kitesurfing schools and a lot more foreigners. I preferred to have an amazing relaxing body massage at the small traditional spa on the beach and delicious avocado toasts
The Rock restaurant: Undoubtedly, my favorite spot in Zanzibar located in the Southeastern coastline is recognised as amongst the most beautiful beaches in all the world. A beauty that could never be painted on any canvas nor be photographed completly ever , only be created by mother nature.
The Rock restaurant rises a short distant from the shore of the beautiful Michanwi Pingwe beach. Drinking at The Rock is an experience you can’t miss: colours, relish and sensations blend together in unique magic.
June to October is the best time to visitZanzibar, when it’s cool, December to February is also a high season when it’s hot and dry, it is not recommended to travel during the rainy season of March, May and November.
