Excursion to Maziwi Island

One of the highlights of any trip to Ushongo Beach is Maziwi Island. We will take you by boat to this small sandbar six miles out from the Tanzanian coast. only accessible during low tide. This is one of the most beautiful islands off Tanzania. White sand spills across the top of a large coral reef that sits amidst a myriad of blues. Guests can catch a ride out to the island to spend the day snorkeling, lounging, and have a picnic on the remote sandbank. Most of the time you will be lucky and have the place entirely to yourselves, something you won’t find in places like the beaches of Zanzibar.
