This is a small island in front of Stone town which is just 30min away by boat. It was before known as Changuu island where the type of fish called CHANGU {Snaper fishes} were mainly fished by the locals. The British minister in the 1890s decided to build a Prison for the crimes. But when the sultan visited this place, he found out that the place was like a paradise and too good to be used as a Prison. The sultan stopped the mission and it was then used as a quarantine for cholera victims. Now, this island is one of the best attractions in Zanzibar whereby the guests go there to see the giant tortoises, do their best snorkeling, and enjoy the amazing beach. 

The trip is a half-day trip and we as Palm Tours and Safaris provide our guests with fresh tropical fruits, cold mineral water, and an escort guide. This is one of the wonderful photographically beaches.
