Nungwi is a village of fishermen located at the northern tip of Zanzibar Island. It has developed into a large modern beach resort.
It is now the main tourist destination in Zanzibar after the coastal strip of Kiwengwa - Pwani Mchangani on the eastern side of the island.

Nungwi is divided in three parts:

-- in the center, the fishing village with its dhow-making facilities and its fish market. You see hardly any tourists here, excepted for a few ones who come and visit the turtle pools that are also located in this area. The boats of fishermen (they depart at sea mostly at night) are visiblebut the village may hardly be seen from the seaside since it is largely hidden behind the coastal flora.
-- the eastern part of Nungwi where some hotels are set in tranquil surroundings.
-- the western part of Nungwi where you find many beach hotels and resorts of different sizes and categoriesrestaurants, water sports facilitiesand nightlife. This long touristic strip extends to the neighboring beach resort of Kendwa.
