We stumbled across this hotel by chance when exploring the far north of the island whilst staying at The Zanzibari hotel in Nungwi. The Sunshine Marine Lodge is set on a cliff directly overlooking the main dive sites of the famous Mnemba Atoll. It is about a mile and a half north of the village of Matemwe on Zanzibar Island. This is a well-priced and good quality small beach property, with twenty four rooms. Whilst it doesn’t have direct access to the beach, the views are spectacular. It’s a great place to relax away from the more busier resort areas on the island. The hotel’s focus is mainly on guests wanting to dive and do watersports, both of which can be arranged from the hotel.
