|LOCATION||10 km offshore Stone Town, Zanzibar|
|Bawe Island has a very wonderful and spectacular snorkeling spot. Around a 30-minute boat ride and slightly more expensive than the boat to Prison Island, it is much less visited. In 1870, the island was used to anchor the first telegraph cables to Zanzibar linking it with Aden, South Africa, and Seychelles. A further line was run across to Stone Town, into the old Extelcoms building, now the Zanzibar Serena Inn.
If complete isolation and privacy are what you are after, then Bawe is Tropical Island, is the perfect place to stay. There are 15 private cottages scattered along the beachfront, all with breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean, and all tastefully decorated in soft colors to enhance the relaxed pace of life. The beach is excellent at low tide, with unusual stone formations, and there is some good snorkeling to be had on the island’s reef.
