This large village at Zanzibar Island's northernmost tip was once best known as a dhow-building centre. Today it's a major tourist destination, thanks in part to the beautiful beach and stunning sunsets. The result: a place where traditional and modern knock against each other with full force. Fishing boats still launch from the beach – a scene unchanged for centuries – but they're overlooked by a long line of hotels. Some travellers say Nungwi is a definite highlight; others are happy giving it a miss.
