Pongwe Beach Hotel

Pongwe Beach Hotel offers the perfect Zanzibar Island experience. The clear blue waters - protected by the reef one kilometre from the shore - are ideal for swimming and snorkelling. If the midday sun becomes too strong you can retreat into the shade of the palm trees that line the white sandy beach, and sip a long, cool drink.
NB: Prices include international flights & transfers! Set departures

Pongwe Beach is a tranquil location; the ideal place to relax and enjoy Zanzibar’s distinctive, mellow pace. You can dive into the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, or stretch out and soak up the sun on the beach. It is the perfect retreat for those looking for that extra special honeymoon, or a holiday with an air of exclusivity.

The Hotel has its own traditional wooden long boat with which guests may gain access to deep waters before and beyond the reef. This provides the ideal opportunity to go fishing for tuna, marlin, barracuda and king-fish. There is also snorkelling out at Mnemba Atoll where you will find many coral species and marine life.
