Nungwi, or Ras Nungwi, is a large village located in the far northern end of the island of Zanzibar.It is situated in the Nungwi Ward in the Kaskazini A District of the Unguja North Region. It is about 35 miles (56 km) north of Zanzibar Town on the Nungwi Peninsula, about an hour drive from Stone Town.
Paje has a wide, white beach at the junction where the coastal road north to Bwejuu and south to Jambiani joins with the road from Zanzibar Town. It’s quite built-up, with a cluster of small-scale places on the beach and a party atmosphere. Paje is also Zanzibar’s main kitesurfing centre; during the season, between December and June, the sea is filled with surfers, often so much so that it can be difficult to find a quiet spot to swim.
Kiwengwa village is spread out along a fine, wide beach, and is the locus of Zanzibar’s package-tourism industry. Hidden behind high walls in lushly planted gardens, most of the Italian-run resorts are all-inclusive, with guests seldom leaving the grounds.Tags: blog, hotel, travel
