    This is not the part of Zanzibar you want to go to if swimming in the sea and snorkelling are your priority. You need to go to the north of the island. Look at resorts near Nungwi. Hope this helps.

    HI - we organised our own transport before going to the hotel - they charge far too much - if you look on Viator you will find reputable companies that you can make an arrangement with - but do this prior to travelling
