  • While driving up on the boat, you can see the pure natural beauty of this sandbank. It completely amazed me that in a few hours it would all disappear. I’m so blessed I was able to experience this natural wonder in person, it was absolutely stunning to see. The white sand was soft and the water was so clear that you could see the bottom of the floor and small fish swimming by your feet. I’ve been to plenty of beaches in the Caribbean, but I’m not really sure if I’ve ever seen one with water as vibrant as Nakupenda! If you’re in Zanzibar, find a tour that can bring you to one of God’s amazing Masterpieces.
