Jambiani is a small fishing village on the southeast coast of the island of Zanzibar, Tanzania. With several guesthouses and hostels catering to visitors, the village boasts pristine beaches with white sands and turquoise blue waters.
The village itself is small enough to get around by foot and many choose to visit here as a quiet, tranquil destination for their holidays.
The closest airport to Jambiani is Kisauni Airport, a distance of 38km away. From here you can catch a local dalla-dallas or a taxi. Some guest houses also put on shuttles back and forth, but they must be arranged with the establishment beforehand.
Jambiani is a popular destination for guests from Tanzania and further afield because it is small and quiet. Many visitors here enjoy the peaceful, unpacked beaches. It's worth taking a trip on a dhow, a small wooden boat, to see the beautiful coral reef and snorkel in the waters.
