Zanzibar vacations

Located off the coast of Tanzania in the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar is known for its picturesque beaches and diverse marine life and coral reefs. Orbitz makes it affordable to book your Zanzibar vacation resort along with your airfare. Packages from the US start as low as $1,432.

Zanzibar beaches

The best beaches are on the north and east sides of the island, where coral sands lead to a barrier reef and the Indian Ocean. Luckily, that’s where you’ll also find the best beach resorts in Zanzibar.

  • Visit Kendwa Beach to relax under the sun by day and party by night. Check out the full moon party at Kendwa Rocks, usually thrown on the Saturday closest to the full moon. Gold Zanzibar Beach House & Spa offers 5-star luxury right on Kendwa Beach. Book an ocean-view room and enjoy the sunset from your balcony.
  • Paje Beach is a popular spot for backpackers, as there are plenty of hostels, bars, and coffee shops. This beach is also a popular spot for kiteboarding, with plenty of schools to teach amateurs how it’s done. Arabian Nights Suites is steps from Paje Beach, and windsurfing, diving, surfing, and fishing are all offered on-site.

Hotels in Stone Town

Looking to add a little culture to your vacation? Stone Town is the oldest part of Zanzibar City, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore museums, stunning architecture, and local cuisine in this charming town. For pure walkability, James House is an excellent choice. It’s less than a 10-minute walk to local attractions like Palace Museum, Mbweni Ruins, and Hamamni Persian Baths.
