While the stunning coastline is a must-see, any romantic Zanzibar getaway would be incomplete without a visit to Stone Town. For years, adventurous couples have been drawn to the old town’s maze of narrow streets and alleyways, and new quaint restaurants and intimate hotels have only added to the quarter’s allure. The winding alleyways are also home to a rising number of speciality shops and boutiques that sell high-end, made-in-Zanzibar jewellery, apparel, and accessories. For those with a love for food, rooftop restaurants, perched high above the streets, provide tantalizing cocktails and fresh seafood, as well as spectacular sunset views across the palm trees and out over the bay.
