The coast of Tanzania is blessed with miles of white sandy beaches, tropical oceans, friendly people and blissfully absent of large resorts. The northern stretch from Dar es Salaam to Tanga is very popular with locals and residents but few tourists avail themselves of this well kept secret. Life on the coast is laid back. There are sisal and coconut plantations.
Pangani is an interesting small town about 50 kms south of Tanga. There is a strong cultural tourism program easily found in the small town. It’s fun to watch the produce come down the river from the interior and the birding is quite good.
