Tanzania's beautiful beaches and waters beckon. While Zanzibar is the most common beach extension, there are other islands such as Pemba and Mafia – more off the beaten track, and less crowded. The mainland coast also has beautiful beach lodges and camps. Saadani National Park has safari and beach together. Most people will take a short flight to get to beach areas, although they can also be reached by driving (mainland coast) or driving plus ferry (islands). On Zanzibar, we have stayed at and can recommend Fumba Beach Lodge
. Unfortunately, our other favorite - Ras Nungwi - was destroyed by fire.
