          Our second day on Zanzibar involved a complimentary boat trip across the bay to Paradise Beach. We departed at low tide in three boats, with the obligatory life jackets, and made our way slowly through the shallow waterways, watching the local fishermen and seaweed collectors plying their daily trade. The beach we were able to access by boat was not that attractive and we decided to walk ...

As we got closer a one of the guides called out "ok toilet time" everyone looked around in confusion and he explained jump overboard, make sure your wet suit is around your knees, hold onto the boat and go.

          Today is our first full day at the resort. We arrived last night and got settled in, went for dinner, and it was your typical resort show. It is our rest day, time to unwind, sleep in (didn't happen) and lay on the beach (did happen) and look out at the most beautiful turquoise ocean. We are on the west side ...

We were soon away and unlike my previous experience this dhow also had a motor and was held together by iron nails and not sewn. We set off under power trying to get offshore to find the wind. Here I started to work out the demographics of the passengers. It quickly became apparent that the crew had their wives and girlfriends (so much for them never meeting - a navy joke you might not all get) onboard. ...

          Beach slap

          A travel blog entry by alexobt on Jul 17, 2013

          In a desperate attempt to find something useful to do, we take a walk down the coast to another small village we've head about. It ends up being a bit of an adventure, as no one warned us that this walk can only be made when the tide is out. We scramble over a few spiky cliffs and wade through the surf at points, sometimes walking through eerily derelict shells of buildings obviously once destined to be five star resorts. Unfortunately supply far outstrips supply ...
