Michamvi Beach I 2021 Zanzibar Guide
Michamvi Beach Zanzibar
Michamvi is a peninsula on the central east coast of the island. Although there are two large beach resorts in the area, Michamvi feels remote and has long stretches of empty beaches to explore. The peninsula consists of two parts, Michamvi-Pingwe and Michamvi-Kae.
On the eastern side is Michamvi-Pingwe, with a vibrant coral lagoon and beautiful palm-fringed beaches set in a string of scenic coves between high coral-rag cliffs. On the western side is Michamvi-Kae, which faces west towards Chwaka Bay.
Best Beach Resorts Around Michamvi Beach
Situated in a truly unique location in the South East of Zanzibar on the tip of the Michamvi peninsula, Jua offers blissful barefoot luxury for very few, and small intimate groups. Untouched beaches, untamed nature and warm service according to your schedule come together to create an extraordinary holiday experience.
Konokono Beach Resort is located on the Michamvi Peninsula, on the South East Coast of Zanzibar - one of the most authentic and secluded places on the island - and overlooks the wonderful Chwaka Bay. The resort is a quiet paradise offering privacy and tranquility in the heart of nature.
Set in a tropical garden with steps to white powder of nungwi’s award winning beach and temperate indian ocean, the Z hotel will provide you with everything you need for a unique away-from-it-all holiday but with all the advantages of modern living, including lcd tv, cable tv, wifi & docking stations in all rooms.
As on all of Zanzibar’s East Coast, the beach slopes very little. Consequently, when the tide is out, the water retreats a long way, pausing swimming from the shore but allowing for unique inter-tidal exploration along the exposed reef. Guided trips showcase stunning starfish, clams and colourful tropical fish and offer fascinating insight into reef life.
For an even more immersive view, the nearby fringe reef, which runs the length of the island, offers divers, snorkellers and swimmers super encounters with vibrant marine life. Both complete beginners and more experienced divers are well catered for in Michamvi, with the beautiful Blue Lagoon and well-organised trips to the reef readily available.
For all-out aquatic adventure, kite-surfing (complete beginning to world-class) is phenomenally good in this area, and growing in popularity. Kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and surfing are also possible, and barefoot beach walks to laid-back, makuti-thatched bars, naturally cool water sports centres and PADI dive operators are part of the pleasure here.
Myriad boutique hideaways and family-friendly resorts dot the Michamvi coast, all with sparking pools and lush, tropical gardens leading down to raised private beaches and the alluring shoreline. From tranquil havens to action-packed adventures, there is a place and space for everyone on Michamvi.
