Beach is a small guesthouse which is located out on its
own on a long stretch of classic palm-lined, white sand
beach on the the North East coast of Zanzibar Island.
Just off-shore from the guesthouse is the world-famous
Mnemba Atoll, whose circling reef has some of the best
diving in East Africa. Along the beach from us are palm-thatched
villages, where friendly local people live a traditional
