How To Celebrate Christmas on an Island ~ Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas


An Island Christmas

There is an element of the festive in every journey we take… the anticipation, the hope, the joy, the giving in to the pull of life. On an island in the Indian Ocean, waking up to a sun rising on a quiet beach with only you and a few local fishermen and women wading across the water, and sipping cocktails with your feet dancing in the white sand as the sun sinks again, all the feelings of hope, joy and life take over.

In the centre of a Christmas or New Year’s celebration, this is only intensified. The magic takes over, glasses clinking in the air without a care, friends and family and lovers all in one place, joined in merrymaking. This is how to celebrate the festive season on an island. And at a private villa on a beach in Zanzibar, there are a few other tricks adding to the voodoo at play.
