Nungwi

By day a sleepy hamlet on the north coast of Zanzibar, tourists in Nungwi are mostly there to sunbathe, swim, indulge in massages and stroll through the mediocre tourist market; sunset cruises and scuba diving are about as active as it get, though travellers can also visit the Mnarani Aquarium and Sea Turtle Conservation Area.

Tourists looking for peace and quiet had best leave by nightfall however. By night, Nungwi becomes a totally different place as the entire town buzzes with energetic nightlife. Beach bars build bonfires and the music plays nearly until dawn.
