Situated on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, Pongwe Beach Hotel is a true paradise retreat, set within a secluded bay on the east coast of Zanzibar. This is a vibrant, historical Indian Ocean island 60km off the coast of Tanzania, at Dar es Salaam. Pongwe Beach Hotel offers the perfect island paradise experience with clear blue waters, protected by the reef only one kilometre from the shore, which are ideal for swimming and snorkelling.
Traditional wooden dugout boat is available for guests to explore the deep waters before and beyond the reef. This provides the ideal opportunity to go game fishing for tuna, marlin, and barracuda and king fish. There is also snorkelling at Mnemba Atoll where there are many coral species and marine life to be discovered; and at Kizimkazi, sharks, dolphins and turtles can be found. Scuba diving can be arranged whether it be a day dive or a PADI open water course. Take a trip around the island, or to the historic, bustling, cultural core of Zanzibar, Stone Town. Traveling around the island can be guided in a hired care or guests are welcome to hire a 4×4 jeep, or a motorbike and embark on a self-drive adventure. A preference for the ocean is also an option and guests can go out for a day cruising or combine it with some big game fishing and snorkelling.
