How would you like to visit a sandbank in the middle of the ocean where you can walk along white sand, sunbathe, swim, and snorkel in the turquoise clear waters, and then enjoy a delicious picnic?

Then book this tour right away! This is a full day trip leaving from the Serena Hotel in Stone Town at 9am.

First, you’ll experience sailing on a traditional dhow to Prison Island. Here you can see the Giant Aldabra Tortoises and then go swimming and snorkeling among the colorful corals and tropical fish of the islands.

The next stop is a sandbank where you will enjoy a beautiful white sandy beach and a delicious seafood lunch with drinks included. 

The tranquil sandbank sits in the ocean and suddenly comes to life with the sounds of seabirds flying above. While you enjoy, our crew will cook up a delicious seafood lunch of grilled fish, lobster, and fresh tropical fruits. Relax after lunch before we head back.
