Zanzibar

White beaches with sand that seems talcum powder, crystalline sea and seabed with corals and colourful fishes, palm trees, lush forests and exotic animals, this is Zanzibar, one of the unspoiled paradises in the world. The United Republic of Tanzania includes Zanzibar whose main island Unguja, better known as Zanzibar, is the largest.
The island is mostly flat and above the sea level but in the central-western part there are some small hills that reach a maximum altitude of 123 m. The Indian Ocean is subject to the natural phenomenon of the tides and offers a fascinating scene when, twice a day, it withdraws for several hundred meters. During low tide you can admire the original strips of sand called sand-bank, and it is also possible to reach the reef.
