Nungwei Overview

Nungwi is a fishermen's village and a tourist attraction located at the northernmost tip of Unguja (Zanzibar), East Africa. In the past it was mostly known as a dhow boatyard. Until the 1990s, the local population was opposed to tourism, so Nungwi's beach is one of the last in the area to host hotels and other touristic structures. This situation has since changed, and the main beach of Nungwi, nicknamed "Jambo Square", is now constantly full of visitors. A small aquarium with sea turtles has recently been created in the village. There are plenty of small shops and restaurants along the beach.
