Discover the Spice Islands with Azamara®

It may only be 26 miles off the coast of Tanzania, but the beautiful archipelago of Zanzibar feels like a world away. It’s an East African feast for the senses, with warm turquoise waters, powder white sands, vibrant coral reefs, and fields scented with cinnamon, cardamom, and clove.

The largest and most populated island of this semi-autonomous region is Unguja, commonly referred to as Zanzibar Island, or simply “Zanzibar”. It’s home to dozens of picture-perfect beaches—like the lively Kendwa and Nungwi, or the quieter Kizimkazi, where dolphins like to hang out—so you could easily spend the day beach-hopping, snorkeling, and sunning.

If you’re in the mood for UNESCO World Heritage Sites, head to Stone Town. Once the center of the spice trade in the 19th century, it’s a beguiling mix of Arab, European, Indian, and Persian influences—all of which can be experienced in its narrow streets and bustling shops.

Naturally, your stay in “the Spice Islands” should include a visit to one of the many local plantations, where you can smell and taste everything from vanilla to lemongrass, get a coconut straight from the tree, and purchase spices fresh from the farm. Explore FurtherSM and add more spice to your life on this Azamara cruise to Zanzibar.
