Prison Island

Prison Island Zanzibar

Prison Island is a simply Paradise on Earth. One of zanzibar's best known attractions, the island lies 3.5 miles to the northwest of Zanzibar's Stone Town, a short 20 minutes dhow ride from Stone Town, and like Zanzibar has a fascinating history. The old prison building which were later used as a quarantine station have been meticulously restored by the present owners to create a modern boutique hotel whilst preserving the historical treasures. Things has changed a lot here since the time explorers such as Vasco da Gama, stanley and Livingstone passed through this Island. Prison Island offers luxury and comfort with accommodation in 15 deluxe cottages and 12 sea-facing rooms. On Prison Island the pristine, white shoreline gives way to dense tropical forest a place for rare birds and also home to colony of over 200 Giant aldabran tortoises. Most importantly, Prison Island is a place to relux. Here there are no watersports, no spa, just stunning sunsets and a place to roam arround as you please.
