Unguja, always called Zanzibar, is the best known island, located 30 km from the coast in the Indian Ocean, of the Zanzibar archipelago. The most famous neighborhood is Stone Town (part of the capital Zanzibar city) where you can easily stay at least 2 days because there are many interesting excursions here. Zanzibar was the capital of Oman and that is why many beautiful palaces of the former Sultans are here located and it has a unique atmosphere.
Mrembo Spa is a traditional spa where you can get acquainted with the original beauty treatments. The city is far too big and interesting to discover in 1 day. It also has so many different facets to discover that it is difficult to do just 1 excursion.
The island has also become rich and famous for the local spices that grew here, such as cloves. During a visit at the spice farm you learn a lot about the spices, herbs and fruits here and the way people use them.
