Visit Zanzibar for your romantic beach honeymoon. Zanzibar is the perfect beach honeymoon destination for divers and lovers of sun & beach.
With excellent beaches and water activities, you can choose between a really relaxing honeymoon or an adventurous one. Diving and snorkeling is phenomenal and can be arranged from most of the resorts. Day excursions include Spice Tour, swimming with dolphins and so much more.
Zanzibar is an island in Tanzania but we list is separately as it is so different obviously as it is a beach destination. It is an archipelago made up of Zanzibar and the islands of Pemba, Mafia and several other islets. Zanzibar Island (Unguja) is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, occupying a total area of approximately 650 square miles.
There is an airport on Zanzibar Island (Kisauni Airport) with direct flights from South Africa, Kenya and other parts of Tanzania. Or else you can fly to Dar es Salaam and connect to Zanzibar with another flight (or ferry).
Best time for a Zanzibar Honeymoon
The best time to visit Zanzibar for your honeymoon is in the dry season which is between June and October. This is ideal if you want to combine it with a Tanzania safari honeymoon too. December until February is also a great time for your honeymoon when it is warm and dry.
Between March and May, especially April, gets the most rainfall.
