Zanzibar Islands – Mnemba

Mnemba Private Island
The Mnemba Atoll is an atoll, located off the northeast coast of Unguja, the largest island of Zanzibar. It consists of an oval reef seven by four kilometres in extent, containing the tiny Mnemba Island at about 1.5km in circumference. The surrounding reefs have been declared a Marine Conservation area. The island is ringed by a continuous white-sand beach, set in sparkling turquoise waters, and in the centre a thick wood of whistling palms is home to the friendly, yet shy Suni. With powder-soft sand and a cool woodland centre, Mnemba Island is a natural sanctuary for wildlife, and an ideal exotic holiday and honeymoon destination. The island centre is a cool pine forest, and the eastern coastal aspect feels quite wild and unkempt despite its diminutive size. This is barefoot luxury at its very best, with the enphasis being as much on what is not here. Elegant simplicity is the key. But what makes Mnemba so incredibly relaxing is that after a very short time you realize that staff here know how to lok after you better than you know yourself.
