Though beach tourism in Tanzania is centered on offshore islands such as Zanzibar and Mafia, the mainland Swahili Coast hosts a wealth of attractive, off-the-beaten-track seaside destinations. The islands of Pemba and Mafia just off the coast of Tanzania are less well-known than Zanzibar but offer some fantastic unspoilt reefs for diving and snorkelling - although their beaches are arguably not as good as Zanzibar's. Much more remote and less visited than Zanzibar, these are real tropical islands with thick undergrowth and great reefs and sand spits making these islands ideal for diving and snorkelling away from the crowds.
