Stone Town visit

Stone town Excursion

Spend the day in Stone Town, located on the Western Coast of Unguja, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, flourishing centre of the spice trade, as well as a former slave trade centre, in the 19th century

After a 35 minutes drive from our resort, we will walk through this historically and artistically well-known architecture and designs, mostly dating back to the 19th century. You will see the reflection of the diverse cultural influences, emphasising the Swahili culture and giving a unique mixture of Persian, Arab, Bantu and European touches. Therefore, the town was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000. Let’s continue with the Palace Museum, commonly known as the Sultan’s Palace which, from 1994, became a museum dedicated to the Zanzibari Royal Family and History.

Later on, from the port of Stone Town, a half-hour sail will land you on the wonderful white sand beach of Prison Island. There, you will meet the friendly tortoises living up to 150 years and visit the impressive ancient prisons.
