More often than not the 800 kilometers of coastline along the dazzling Indian Ocean and the serene, tropical islands of the Zanzibar archipelago get overshadowed due to some of the greatest safari destinations that the country has. But the amalgamation of variety, tranquility, picturesque landscapes give these beautiful destinations an undeniable edge that appeals to every other traveler who takes the pain to hit the beaches.

Here Are The Major Tourist Attractions Of Tanzania Along The Coast:

  • Bagamoyo. A historical trading town used primarily as a base for trading goods and slaves, this is now a thriving coastal town with remains of monuments from the early 19th century. Due to its proximity to Dar Es Salaam, Bagamoyo is both diverse and fulfilling.
  • Saadani. Saadani National Park is the only protected area in Tanzania that borders with the sea. Both the exceptional biodiversity and location helps this park secure a special place in the safari park arena of Tanzania.
  • Mafia. Mafia Island is a paradise for watersport enthusiasts. It remains relatively hidden and is visited by fraction of people coming to Tanzania, but the island is a definition of relaxation and adventure. Big game fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, offshore excursions are just some of the activities you'll get to do in here. Chole Bay and Mafia Island Marine Park will also help you in spending quality time during your stay.
  • Zanzibar Islands (Unguja & Pemba). The Island of Zanzibar along with Pemba makes the largest chunk of the Zanzibar archipelago. The beautiful white sandy beaches, azure water along with the diverse and vivid coral reef draw the finest scenic landscape one can ever imagine. It is also an excellent diving spot ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving. This island also has a rich historical significance and the Stone Town located in Zanzibar houses monuments that'll take you back in time during the colonial era.
