For me Jambiani was the best place to stay.very calm and not crowded.learn the swahili local culture in jambiani as its a village Beach .you can walk down the hotels freely with no hassles from the locals.stunning sunrise.the locals here are very friendly. No many taxes like other places in zanzibar but you can get intouch with babli and his group +255756983368 they were here always ontime when we needed their services.

Jambiani is a beautiful beach that boasts of white sand, serene environment, and clear blue waters. I enjoyed the low tides and my guide Erick, guided me to walk nearly a kilometer in the ocean, enjoying the beautiful sand and sea environment. However, I would warn against the many beach boys that flood the place selling souvenirs and seeking to guide tourists. Please book your guide in advance to avoid this debacle. I recommend Erick (+255756983368) for his exceptional services.

This review is for the southern part of the beach, the whole being around 5km long.
A stunning stretch of white sand beach. At low tide the water recedes 500m or more revealing sand, dead coral, seaweed with lovely long pools of water left behind. Quite a number of seaweed growing plots are revealed and the locals work these at low tide. With small boats, women working the seaweed, tourists strolling, one or two kite surfers it is so picturesque. At high tide the white sand is not as wide as central Paje or in the north say Matemwe, maybe just 5 or 10 metres wide and at various points becomes impassable to walk where water reaches rocky outcrops. At high tide swimming is possible and enjoyable.,
Jambiani is unbelievably beautiful, really stunning.

It’s an area with a great beach (depending on time of year as sometimes the tide is too low and lots of seaweed).

Very lively and you can walk along the beach and go from hotel to bar to restaurant to spa and massages by the beach.

Great place to stay or spend the day in Zanzibar

Don’t listen to (some) people in Paje who may wish to keep you captive in their businesses and the overcrowded ambiance. Go to Jambiani and meet a much more real authentic African vibration, Stress-free and chilling beach.
Highly recommended for Kitesurfers who do not want to feel a “Friday evening chaotic trafic” spot like Paje’s one!

Jambiani Beach is located on the east part of Zanzibar around 55 km away from the airport. It is a small white sand beach comparing to the rest on the island. It has some dozens of hotels and restaurant right in front of the beach. In this place like in all east area you can experience the phenomeno of the tide almost every 6 hours. It is not so recommended for swimming especially when is low tide since you need to walk hundreds of meters to find water but the views are magic. Beach itself is good but not always clean since it has many garbages around and the phenomeno of the tide leaves also large amounts of sea plants on the coast. The most annoying thing of all is for me the large amounts of people some times of the day and the beach boys that are a little bit pushy to the tourists although they are not scary or dangerous. I also didnt like the kite activity that is everywhere. I would prefer a more quiet beach or at least this activity can be in a part of the beach.
