Discover a myriad of attractions in Zanzibar City, like its World Heritage-listed historic core, charming beach villages, and the modern neighborhood of Ng'ambo.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Christ Church Cathedral and Old Slave Market/Anglican Cathedral. Get outdoors at Nungwi Beach and Cheetah's Rock. When in Zanzibar City, make a side trip to see Uroa Bay in Uroa, approximately Uroa away. There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Nakupenda Beach, admire the landmark architecture of House of Wonders (Beit-el-Ajaib), and step off the mainland to explore Prison Island - Changuu Private Island.
