Seemingly uninhabitated and quiet bank in the ocean suddenly comes to life with millions of birds flying overhead and ghost crabs scurrying across the golden sands. After lunch relax on the sandbank listening to the bird life around you and the hush waves lapping against the shore.

We will slowly sail back to Stone Town after soaking up the sun and return to the shore by 02:30pm.
