Tanga, a major industrial centre until the collapse of the sisal market, is Tanzania’s second-largest seaport and its fourth-largest town behind Dar es Salaam, Mwanza and Arusha. Despite its size, it’s an agreeable place with a sleepy, semicolonial atmosphere, wide streets filled with cyclists and motorcycles, intriguing architecture and faded charm. It makes a pleasant stop en route to or from Mombasa, and is a springboard to the beaches around Pangani, about 50km south.
