Are you not sure where to go on holiday next? Do you like water sports, active holidays and meeting like-minded people? We think Zanzibar is the right place to go for everyone who loves the Ocean. Why do we think so? We’ve put together only a few reasons why Zanzibar is a great place to visit if you love the ocean, sunshine, and fresh coconut juice.
1.) Tropical Paradise
The tropical island of Zanzibar, located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania, is blessed with crystal clear warm water all year round and palm tree riddled white sandy
2.) Water Colors
You won’t believe the turquoise blue colors of the water, even when you see it for yourself.
3.) Wind Conditions
Trade winds that date back hundrets of years are consistant for 8 month of the year and bring great conditions for kite surfers, wind surfers, sailors & waves surfers.
The average temperature off the water is 28° in winter and 30° in summer.
5.) Water Temperature
The average temperature in the water is 24° in winter and 27° in summer. You can leave your wetsuits behind, pack your boardies, bikinis and plenty of suncream.
Zanzibar has amazing dive sites, spectacular snorkel lagoons and Nemo never gets lost.
Bountiful outer reefs are a fishermen’s paradise. Up to 30 meter visibility gives you the chance to spot your catch even before it’s on your hook.
8.) No sharks
No sharks in the surf. Never been a shark attack. We never spotted one.
9.) Top class Kite Spot
Zanzibar is now common knowledge to be one of the top kitesurf destinations in the world.
The shallow flatwater lagoons, uncrowded waves to kite and steady winds can not be beaten.
10.) Uncrowded Surf
Surprisingly good waves for surfing and surf spots are always uncrowded.
