Zanzibar has become a go-to destination for couples seeking a blend of cultural discovery, water sports, and white-sand beaches on their honeymoon. This beautiful archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean, about 50 km (30 miles) off the coast of Tanzania in East Africa offers interesting cultural sights, pristine beaches, clear and warm waters, and rare wildlife, such as the red colobus monkey. The waters surrounding Zanzibar are home to a colorful array of coral reefs and marine life, making it a unique and breathtaking destination. Read more about the best beaches in Zanzibar here.

For couples seeking a more distinctive honeymoon experience than traditional beach destinations, Zanzibar is a great option. This guide provides everything you need to know about planning a memorable Zanzibar honeymoon.

What makes Zanzibar a great honeymoon destination?

The island has been shaped by various civilizations, resulting in a diverse population and landscape influenced by ancient Arab and Persian traders, the Portuguese, British, and Swahili culture. The historic quarter of Stone Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and features cobbled streets and a mix of mosques and houses in various architectural styles, making it a must-visit for history and architecture enthusiasts.

For those seeking a relaxing escape, Zanzibar offers a range of boutique resorts along its coast, adding to the island’s allure as a honeymoon destination.

Zanzibar boasts a range of resorts that provide privacy, luxury, and breathtaking views, but each one has its own unique qualities that set it apart from the others. While everyone’s preferences are unique, there are certain factors that many people look for when choosing the perfect honeymoon destination to spend a week or two with their loved one. 

Although it is ultimately a personal decision, we have established the following criteria for our list of top honeymoon locations:
