Dhow Sailing on the beautiful Indian Ocean in Zanzibar
The best way to experience the glorious Zanzibar sunset. On a traditional wooden dhow with the wind in your sail and a glass of wine in your hand as you cruise along watching the setting sun cast gold and amber hues on the North Zanzibar coast There are amazing morning snorkeling tours you can take as well. The highlight of my trip was riding on a dhow in the late afternoon before sunset, with a cold drink, good friends and the wind in your hair. There are multiple spaces to spread out, and they even have an upper deck for amazing views. There are various companies offering these tours throughout the island, but the beach fronting Kendwa Rock Hotel is by far, my all time favorite spot on the island and where I took my sail.
