Pangani is a sleepy small Swahili town at the coast south of Tanga at the outlet of Pangani river. It has nice beaches and a number of hotels are have been built or renovated in recent years.

There is a fantastic beach 16 kms south of Pangani called Ushongo Bay. It is possible to swim all day as there is water even at low tide. Other than lounging on the beach, one of the main activities here is snorkeling and scuba diving on Maziawe Island Marine Park. Any of the accommodations can arrange transfers to Saadani National Park, Zanzibar or Dar es Salaam.

For some true relaxation in a place that seems somehow shielded from the throng of tourists, Pangani is worth the visit.
