Great nightlife

The Zanzibar nightlife options are fun and unique, and you could easily spend your evening at a laid back beach bar in Kendwa or an up-market nightclub in Stone Town – the choices are at your fingertips!

Zanzibar offers a distinctive party scene that ensures maximum relaxation after a tour in Stone Town or a day at the beach. If you’re looking for something to spice up your nights, here are some places in Zanzibar that will do the trick.

Kendwa Rocks is famous for parties and it offers a beach party every Saturday night with music, fun, and entertainment, but it is most famous in Zanzibar for hosting the Full Moon Party almost every month.

Full moon party @Kendwa Rocks

The Full Moon Party is organized around the full moon every month (usually on a Saturday, but not necessarily). Attracting a large crowd of locals and international tourists and travelers, the Full Moon Party offers a delicious grill, amazing acrobats, entertainment and great live music to keep you dancing all night.

Coccobello in Nungwi

Coccobello is famous for its unforgettable parties. What is it famous for? This is the place where local meets tourist. There will always be a 50/50 mix of both, which ensures a significant experience. The local people will show off their incredible dance moves. They have been practicing on the beach, or simply danced together before and the whole room will start moving simultaneously on the best African beats.

Regularly, there will be hired dancers or other performers and you will be able to watch a show inside or outside, visit one of the bars, get a great slice of pizza or Nutella pancake or even rent a shisha. Don’t visit Nungwi without paying a visit to our favorite go-to!

    1. Hi Christopher, good question! For liveliness, I would recommend Nungwi. There is far much more going on in general. Jambiani is wonderful with beautiful beaches and also has nice parties to offer, but is calmer in general. Enjoy!
