Zanzibar, the largest coral island off the East coast of Africa, is a haven for diving and fishing. Zanzibar waters are home to year-round game fishing, including the legendary Marlin. Zanzibar, once closely linked to Oman, was once the center of the spice trade. The island is just four and a half-hour flying time from the Gulf. — (menareport.com)
