Chumbe Island is Zanzibar’s first marine sanctuary and remains a unique destination for very keen snorkelers.  It is an education over load of marine life and being home to 90% of East Africa’s coral species really gives it a different angle to your typical beach experience. Getting there can be a bit of a mission, with the boat transfers going at set times so it sometimes doesn’t really favour tight flight connections.  But it is a lovely eco lodge for a certain type of person and being 100% run by locals it is a pure African beach experience.
