Zanzibar's Indian Ocean offers world class water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and water skiing.
Sultan’s palaces and mosques, bazaars and Hindu temples can be found next to each other in the tangled lanes of Stone Town (47km), a World Cultural Heritage site since 2000.
Visitors may choose to visit the fascinating historical Stone Town, the old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar. It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses
whose original owners vied with each other over the extravagance of their dwellings. This one-upmanship is particularly reflected in the brass-studded, carved, wooden doors - there are more than 500 different examples of this handiwork. You can spend many idle hours and days just wandering through the fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.
