Next, hop back aboard the boat and make your way to the Nakupenda Beach Nature Reserve. Discover one of the most beautiful locations in Zanzibar as you relax on sandy white beaches surrounded by turquoise waters. Unwind and soak up the sun in this tranquil setting before indulging in a beachside barbecue lunch. Savor the flavors of Zanzibar with local specialties, including the catch of the day and other seafood dishes. Fresh seasonal fruits and a non-alcoholic beverage round out your meal.
