Fanjove Island is the smallest of six islands in the Songo Songo Archipelago, just off the coast of Tanzania. This iconic sand and coral island with its many palm trees, white sandy beaches and shimmering water is only one kilometer long and about 400 meters wide.
This beautiful, barefoot-freedom tropical island is surrounded by shimmering blue water with white sandy beaches, shaded with palm trees. Only the 19th century lighthouse and some architectural remnants of a former fishing village settlement hint at previous occupation by anything other than wildlife. There are six discreet, eco-chic private bandas on the island. These are set along the sandy shore in complete harmony with the environment. Made from all natural, traditional materials, the whole property is designed to leave as little footprint possible.
Step out of your banda, toes in the sand, swim and snorkel straight off the beach or head out to explore the pristine 11 kilometer coral reef. SUP or Kayak around the island or enjoy a marine safari by dhow in search of spinner dolphins, green turtles and humpback whales.
