African coastal culture reflects the bona fide Arabic impacts: the gorgeous-cruised dhows still keep running before the breeze. Time moves contrastingly here, and you're likely to meet ladies in veil than swimming outfits.
There are radiantly peaceful beaches where you'll see just your own impressions, while segregated archipelagoes let you vanish off the radar and give you the freshness. The dancing waves surrounded by lively coral reefs and the golden rays of the sun make the color of the nature always changing with the horizon.
Choices for African beach destinations are as infinite as the safari. Kenya (Watamu, Mombasa), Tanzania (Zanzibar, Nungwi, Pemba, Dar Es Salaam) and Madagascar are some of the popular beach destinations offering the glorious view of nature with the feel of relaxation.
Blessed with long pristine and palm-fringed beaches, blue skies, bright sunshine, unspoilt coastal villages and luxury oceanfront resorts, Zanzibar is the most popular holiday destination in Africa. Zanzibar holidays are simply amazing with top beach activities such as kite-surfing, diving, snorkelling and simply swimming.
Nungwi is one of the rare Zanzibari beaches with sparkling sunshine, making it perfect for all-day water activities. The expansive coastline of Nungwi is wide open for swimming, sunset cruising, diving, snorkeling and deep sea fishing. Among all the sunset sighting cruising in a traditional dhow is the most-exciting thing the beach has to offer.
Enjoy the heavenly peace and tranquillity of Watamu, a romantic getaway to a coastal adventure. In Swahili language, the meaning of Watamu is "Home of the sweet people". The coastal side of Watamu is a part of Watamu National Park. Sailing in a wooden dhow and enjoying the sunset is truly a fantastic experience. It’s an ideal place for visitors to chill out and explore the wonder.
The Mombasa shoreline of Indian Ocean stretches as much as eyes can see. The picturesque setting is a perfect getaway for water-skiing, windsurfing and sailing in the deep. Mombasa exceeds your every expectation and makes you feel absolutely pampered in the remote paradise.
Madagascar is full of the hidden gems of white sandy beaches. The region is a beach heaven, with palm-fringed stretches of white sand, secluded coves and turquoise clear waters that make it a perfect place for swimming, snorkelling and diving. Madagascar is home to the largest seafront among all African nations.
