Exclusive yet unpretentious, AndBeyond Mnemba Island is an award-winning private beach paradise just off the north-east coast of Zanzibar.
Just 1.5 km (less than a mile) in circumference, Mnemba is surrounded by an atoll of breathtaking coral reefs and boasts some of Africa’s most magnificent dive sites.The calm azure seas surrounding the island offer irresistible snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and permanent swimming directly from the beach.
This exquisite private island, with its white coral beaches, is renowned as one of the most romantic ocean destinations in the world, offering a privacy and rustic exclusivity unparalleled on the African coastline.
Thatched dining, sitting and bar areas boast beautiful open views of the beach and spectacular vistas of Zanzibar beyond. Lunch is often served on large wooden carved Zanibari platters while romantic candlelit dinners are served on the beach.
The 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 9 weeks, the beaches are filled with tiny turtle hatchlings, ready to start their incredible journey.
The 10 beachside bandas overlook a pristine coral reef, and all have direct access to the beach. A covered walkway leads to a shuttered en-suite bathroom with a huge glass-beaded shower curtain. Built-in barazas on the verandas are the perfect spot for afternoon siestas, and the private beach salas feature traditional Zanzibari loungers, ideal for many hours spent on the beach.
In addition, Mnemba Island has one family banda consisting of 2 bandas situated within close proximity to one another and can accommodate a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children).
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
