ZEN in Paradise

Pure white crystalline sand is the hallmark of the perfect paradise island. Mnemba Island off the northern tip of Zanzibar fits the description perfectly and is home to one of the world’s top10 barefoot hideaways. The island is small enough to walk around in an hour. At dawn, when the tide recedes, the beach flats that are home to juvenile fish and crabs are left exposed with repeating patterns of sand ripples and water reflecting the morning light. The gentle sea breeze, soft morning light, scudding tropical clouds and a new sand pattern every day brings out the ZEN Garden made just for the select few who get to stay at the 10 room lodge.
