Mangapwani Serena Beach Club

Backed by coconut palms fronted by secluded white sandy beaches and rocky coves, looking out over an expanse of translucent turquoise ocean where dolphin arc, turtles potter and curtains of fish drift amongst rainbow coral gardens, the Managapwani Serena Beach Club is the ultimate island paradise.

Located on the unspoilt northwest coast of Zanzibar, this exclusive club offers serenity, sun worship, swimming, sea sports, sumptuous seafood and a lavish array of barbecues, Swahili specialities and tropical fruits. Amenities include opulent day beds, palm-thatched parasols, henna body art and luxury changing and rest rooms.

The activities on offer include swimming, snorkelling, sea kayaking, diving, water sports, dhow trips and nature trails plus visits to a dhow workshop and the brooding caverns of the Mangapwani Slave Caves where slaves were hidden after the abolishment of slavery made their shipment illegal. They were then smuggled down to the slave ships at the dead of night.

The Mangapwani Serena Beach Club can be enjoyed for days on the beach and lavish luncheons or booked for exotic evening cocktails and beach barbeques.
