WORLD-CLASS SNORKELLING AND DIVING ON YOUR DOORSTEP
&BEYOND HOSPITALITY AND LUXURY
Exclusive yet unpretentious, andBeyond Mnemba Island is an award-winning private beach paradise just off the northeast coast of Zanzibar. Ten beachside bandas overlook a pristine coral reef (a scuba diver’s delight) at this romantic, private hideaway. From snorkelling, swimming and kayaking to massages on the beach and simply doing nothing at all, andBeyond Mnemba has something for everyone.
andBeyond Mnemba Island offers an unpretentious paradise where just ten rustic palm-frond bandas are tucked into a tropical forest fringed by a white coral sand beach. Each banda at andBeyond Mnemba Island has direct access to the beach. A covered walkway leads to a shuttered ensuite bathroom with a huge glass-beaded shower curtain. Built-in barazas on the veranda are perfect for afternoon siestas and private beach salas feature traditional Zanzibari loungers ideal for languid hours spent on the beach.
WHY WE LIKE IT? &Beyond lodges are all set in beautiful locations. The accommodation and service is always top notch. It’s basically your own private island.
HOW TO GET THERE? Daily flights from all over Tanzania to Zanzibar and a ferry over to Mnemba.
SPECIAL INTEREST: Mnemba Island is a honeymooners paradise.
Turtle season peaks between April and August (however, laying can occur year round) and these prehistoric creatures can be seen laying their eggs on the beaches. Within nine weeks, the beaches are filled with tiny turtle hatchlings.

“Just over a week into my safari and I wonder how I’ve changed, if at all. Certainly the experiences I’ve had and things I’ve seen have shaped me in someway. But then, as if by some ancient, unspeakable memory, I remember… it’s in my blood.”
