Zanzibar Honeymoon: Why You’ll Love It

A romantic holiday in Zanzibar is an exciting option for couples if you’re searching for a romantic island getaway. A Zanzibar honeymoon is unlike any other thanks to its exotic combination of adventures, interesting history, and breathtaking natural beauty.

The moment you land in Zanzibar, you’ll feel that you’ve entered a different universe. Cloves fill the air, vibrant markets spill out onto the streets, and everyone is extraordinarily friendly. You’ll fall in love with this enchanted island in no time. Exploring the historic Stone Town and unwinding on the stunning beaches are just two of the fantastic things to do in Zanzibar. Of course, a romantic sunset cruise is essential for any honeymoon. Zanzibar is the ideal choice if you’re looking for a honeymoon destination that will truly be unforgettable.

Highlights of a Zanzibar Honeymoon

Zanzibar Honeymoon

Your Zanzibar honeymoon will leave lasting memories. The experiences in Zanzibar are endless—from embarking on a scuba diving adventure to swimming with dolphins as part of a Kizimkazi tour. For something unique, couples can embark on a sunset dhow cruise and sip cocktails with their toes in the water, while the setting sun paints the sky. Why not enjoy a magnificent candlelit dinner in the surreal remains of Mtoni Palace?

A boat tour is necessary for a honeymoon in Zanzibar, and renting your own dhow for the day is one of the more romantic options. Visit distant tidal sandbars, go snorkelling in colourful coral bays, or just relax on an idyllic beach, where you can take in the sunset and eat under the stars. Zanzibar offers romance in spades.

Stone Town is Romantic

Zanzibar Honeymoon

Although the stunning beaches are a must, a romantic Zanzibar honeymoon should include a visit to Stone Town. Intrepid couples have long been drawn to the old town’s network of tiny streets and alleyways, and the ancient quarter’s appeal has only increased with the opening of new cosy restaurants and idyllic hotels.

A growing number of crafty stalls and boutiques that provide quality, made-in-Zanzibar jewellery, apparel, and accessories are also nestled in the meandering alleys. With breathtaking sunset views over the water and across the palm trees, rooftop restaurants perched high above the streets provide creative cocktails and scrumptious seafood.

Where to Stay

Zanzibar Honeymoon

There are many possibilities for a romantic Zanzibar honeymoon on the Michamvi Peninsula, and it might just have the best selection of hotels. Kendwa and Matemwe also feature several wonderful resorts such as Zuri Zanzibar and the Elewana Kilindi Zanzibar resort—both ideal for newlyweds on a Zanzibar honeymoon. For the ultimate privacy and exclusivity, visit Pemba or Mafia island or one of the other private islands scattered across the archipelago. On your Zanzibar honeymoon, you can expect to have some incredible accommodation experiences, such as breathtaking private tree huts and an underwater bedroom on a houseboat.

Combine Bush and Beach

Zanzibar Honeymoon

Bush and beach are a pairing that simply cannot be beaten because they were made for each other. As you go out on foot across Tanzania’s most famous locations, leave the conventional behind. View the Ngorongoro Crater from a vantage point positioned above a volcano, go wildlife viewing on 250,000 acres of private Serengeti territory, and find yourself on one of the most desired beaches in the world in Zanzibar.
