First up, offshore Tanzania is the beautiful spice island of Zanzibar! This island is the real deal when it comes to being in a pure paradise. Its coastlines are framed with long stretches of beaches with sand as soft as it is white, perfectly set against a turquoise sea. There is no sand in the world that compares with Zanzibar’s in my opinion – and I have touched and laid on plenty. Known for its talcum powdery feel, the country’s sandy beaches are also the starting points for some of best dive destinations, serving up stunningly colourful underwater sights theming with aquatic life.
I am convinced Mauritius floated away from the Caribbean islands many many years ago. There are plenty of tranquil, snow white sandy beaches lined with coconut trees and surrounded by turquoise blue lagoons and coral reefs that almost encircle the coastline. But, don’t let the calm surf mislead you, because on them you can find a flood of activities- water skiing, windsurfing, sailing, deep sea fishing, and parasailing.
Here you will find everything you’d want for a beach holiday: good restaurants, hip nightlife, clean beaches and few crowds. For those who love active vacations, you can ride a quad bike through the dunes and go diving or snorkelling to spots full of amazing marine life such as humpback whales, sharks and manta-rays. The experts advise that you head to Tofo beach first for surfing as well as swimming with manta rays and whale sharks.
