BEACH .... probably the best on Zanzibar

Our beach is one of the most beautiful on the island, soft white sand, fringed with coconut trees some with hammocks and plenty of space for everyone, at high tide the beach is cut off from the rest of the coast – why change perfection!

Our Beach

On a tranquil scene beside the calm blue waters of the Indian Ocean is Pongwe Beach which we (along with many guests over the last 15 years) think is the best Zanzibar Beach.

When we were looking to build our Zanzibar beach hotel in the late 90’s we searched high and low for the most perfect Zanzibar beach. One day we came to Pongwe and knew we had found the perfect beach to build our eco hotel.

The beach is on a stunning private cove at the back of a stunning coral lagoon. This is the picture perfect beach as you sit upon your comfy beach bed on the white-powdery beach, while looking out across the turquoise oceans. If the midday sun gets too severe, the welcoming shades of the palm trees will cool you sip on a fresh coconut recently fallen from the tree.

One of our tour operators Africa Travel Resource, described it as this

The back of the white-sand beach is shaded by a grove of tall palm trees, with strategically placed hammocks and loungers, arguably the best place to park yourself on the whole of the island.  

Pongwe Beach is lucky in the fact that the whole beach is protected by an offshore reef which keeps the inner waters calm and safe for all to swim in. Snorkeling and boat trips can also be arranged to the reef.

Our Swimming Pool

As with many Zanzibar beaches the area is tidal; at low tide swimming is not possible, our infinity pool offers the perfect solution for those wish to swim, alternatively guests can walk out over the sand banks and tidal pools, we recommend wearing shoes for this.

Our infinity pool offers full time swimming opportunities; a rarity for a Zanzibar hotel due to the tidal east coast.

Our gorgeous Infinity Pool overlooking the ocean will make you feel relaxed instantly. Have a dip, take a sun-bathe in one of our beach lounges and enjoy snacks and drinks from the menu.

While lying in our infinity pool you are able to look over the edge and view our beautiful pool almost touching the turquoise seas around our stretch of what many say is the best beach in Zanzibar.
