The delightful little village of Pwani Mchangani lies hidden along Zanzibar Island's east coast and is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the region. Being a popular beach destination, the Pwani Mchangani will delight any type of traveller with its glorious white sand beaches. It also offers a few accommodation options and shopping spots for travellers but Muslim travellers may find it slightly difficult to find facilities such as Halal food or mosques. However, Muslim travellers who plan well in advance will be able to experience a hassle-free stay in Pwani Mchangani.
Pwani Mchangani is a quiet and tiny village on Zanzibar Island, located on the eastern coast of the island. It is quite a popular destination in Tanzania for its beautiful beaches and its blissfully peaceful atmosphere. It is one of the 28 regions that comprise Kaskazini A - a district of Zanzibar North.
Pwani Mchangani is a popular beach destination on the east coast - like some of the other east coast beaches such as Matemwe, Kiwengwa, Bwejuu and Jambiani - which all offer breathtakingly beautiful stretches of white sand beaches, shady palm trees and turquoise blue waters. Travellers to Pwani Mchangani may also visit the other beach villages in the vicinity, which are not located too far away.
The village is also loved for its wonderfully warm climate. The Pwani Mchangani beaches offer plenty of sunshine throughout the year and can be the ideal place - for beach lovers in particular - to sit back and unwind under the sun.
Abeid Amani Karume International Airport - also known as Zanzibar International Airport - serves Pwani Mchangani and is located about 40 kilometres away, towards the south of Zanzibar City. The airport is one of the most prominent and busiest airports in the country and serves numerous airlines and passengers throughout the year.
There are no prominent Halal restaurants in Pwani Mchangani and finding Halal food in the village will be somewhat difficult in comparison to some of the larger cities on Zanzibar Island. However, plenty of seafood options will be available for Muslim travellers as well as a few vegetarian options at some of the local eateries.
There are no known major mosques in Pwani Mchangani but locals will be able to direct you to the nearest prayer facility in the small village. At times when prayer facilities in Pwani Mchangani are unavailable, it is best to use the privacy of your accommodation during prayer times or enquire for a space that can be used when travelling outdoors.
