Sunshine Marine Location Map

Sunshine Marine really is a perfect get away for those who would like to relax, be active and explore away from the crowds.

Located on the north-east coast of Zanzibar and situated on a beautiful cliff, away from other hotels, guest can enjoy total peace as well as spectacular views of the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and Mnemba Atoll.

About 700m from the lodge there is Muyuni Beach - one of the last undeveloped and unspoiled beaches of Zanzibar. This beach can be reached on foot (during low tide), by bike, boat (high tide) or car - the lodge provides free transfers to the beach all day long. The transfer takes around 10 minutes by boat or car.

Diving here offers you a stunning underwater world with schools of tropical reef fish, turtles, dolphins, and beautiful hard and soft coral formations. Dive Point Zanzibar is a small and friendly PADI dive center situated at Sunshine Marine Lodge, who offer daily diving and snorkelling trips to Mnemba and north-east coast reefs. Dive trips include beginner dives for those wishing to discover scuba diving as well as a wide range of PADI diving courses.

The main lodge has a swimming pool and nicely arranged areas with sun beds or hammocks, ideal for sunbathing or reading a book in a shade of an umbrella. The restaurant and bar serve a wide variety of delicious fresh food and drinks.

In every en-suite room you find a comfortable queensize bed with large mosquito net, a ceiling fan, a safe deposit box, and a spacious balcony or veranda.

The Garden Retreat Room has a garden view and small patio area, and is ideal for those travelling on more of a budget. The Garden Suites are perfect for fans of nature, as they all overlook the lush peaceful gardens. The Sunshine Suites are spread out on a gentle hill and surrounded by the gardens, and the Blue Wate Suites are situated right on the ocean front on the edge of the cliff. The Blue Breeze Suites are slightly larger, still situated on the ocean front but a little bit away from the other rooms, making these ideal for anyone preferring a little more privacy.  The Panorama Suite has 2 bedrooms and as the name suggests, offers superb ocean views.
