Changuu Island Resort is located 5km offshore from Stonetown on the west coast of Zanzibar.
This interesting little island used to serve as a quarantine location for ships suspects of carrying infectious diseases. Later the buildings were converted into a small prison and more recently into a sanctuary for giant tortoises.
The tip of the island has a nice little beach, the remainder being surrounded by coral rag cliffs, whilst within the tropical forest lies a network of mysterious rockpools.
Unfortunately, Changuu Island really is rather too close to the busy harbour of Stonetown to offer the kind of remoteness that one usually associated with a tropical island escape.
The new lodge here was opened in 2008, has 15 rooms and is claimed to be five stars. To
our shame we are yet to pay a visit.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
