Zanzibar, the very word itself is captivating; the most mythical island in the world. Who does not know about it? What has not been written about it? For centuries visited by traders and sailors from remote places, the result today is a magic blend of cultures and traditions, an exotic and cosmopolitan society.
Elegantly lying 5 miles off Zanzibar Stone Town, 30 minutes boat drive, Bawe Tropical Island is an island not bigger than a football pitch. A beautiful island that takes the breath away; acres of lush, sexy paradise haven so skilfully done that you will think it all happened naturally.
Arrival at Bawe is something truly unforgettable; a spectacular private island, a haven of peace, silence and cut off ness from the madding outside world.
This lost corner of the world offers a very elementary place with no air condition; simplicity, anonymity and freedom are the determining factors for the guests, 30 people cut off from the rest of the world for whom clothing is optional… Of course, it is your private stretch of sandy beach with barely anyone on it. Only footprints; maybe your own.
Life is so sleepy in this island… It is said that the clocks strike twice – the second time is for those who weren’t awake for the first.
Zanzibar is one of those places people dream of, well before they have ever visited them. This magic yet real archipelago is worldwide known for its abundant variety of exotic species and seafood delicacies found in the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean.
Lying off 5 miles Zanzibar mythical Stone Town, Bawe is truly a dream island, a slice of pure happiness; everything is easy here, in this natural paradise between sea, sun and sky… Fresh fish and seafood, “catch of the day” that the local fishermen will bring right up to you when lying on your beach bed, will meet the dreams of the most demanding gourmets… Ask the chef how you’d like it, and just enjoy it.
If you prefer international cuisine, just ask; no worries. Problems do not exist here.
Lie on the beach, relax … time isn’t important in this island. Forget about time while enjoying the warm waters of the Indian Ocean whilst having a cold drink in the drift wood hippy bar, the Robinson Crusoe, on the beach…
Bawe is the love beach. Simply too good to be true.
Bawe Tropical Island is the perfect setting for those escaping on a romantic breakaway.
