One of the top rooftop destinations to watch the sunset over a cocktail. Add this to your Zanzibar list!

Nice terrace bar at the back of hotel that overlooks the sea- also accessible from waterfront. Great sunset view that is packed out with one hour to sunset so get there early if you want a ringside seat. Good service- packed with tourists so a fair chance you are paying over the odds- worth it at sunset but probably not once the darkness hits.

This hotel looks like something out of Bogart film - ornate interior and a spiral staircase. great art on the walls and the feeling of history everywhere. The best part is the fantastic rooftop bar - whether you're staying there or not be sure to drop by for a drink at sunset to watch the world go by.

It might be a bit overpriced, but this is a pretty special place to have a sundowner. There's nothing like sipping a pina colada as you watch the sun set - and the view here is great for that. My recommendation is splurge a bit on the drinks here, then save money on dinner and hit the night market for some Zanzibar "pizzas".

Drinks, at the very least, are a must on the balcony. As others have recommended, I'd suggest getting there for sunset.
