Why visit Shanzu Beach?
The soft white sand of Shanzu Beach is lined with coconut trees and the blue seas are calm thanks to the protection of the coral reef. The resort offers a mixture of relaxed laid-back sun lounging along with water sports and safaris. A holiday to Shanzu Beach is perfect for adrenaline junkies who can get their fill with activities including snorkelling, scuba diving and sailing. For those preferring something more laid-back, glass-bottomed boat trips will be a tempting option.
