the above mostly answers your question... if you look on the smiles beach reviews photos you can see some of the high and low tide pics. I would definitely recommend staying here rather than with the huge tourist hotels... More
the above mostly answers your question... if you look on the smiles beach reviews photos you can see some of the high and low tide pics. I would definitely recommend staying here rather than with the huge tourist hotels further south, although the swimming would be better south. smiles pool is not really one that you'd spend time swimming in. however the further south you are the more people there will be so it depends really if you want to be with the tourists. from smiles you have quite a lot to see and do including the nungwi village - which is interesting in itself.
dont forget that wherever you are staying the locals will be selling their packages, ie snorkelling trip to the islands for the day, which is relatively good value ($25-$30 US including lunch and snorkel gear) so you can always go off swimming elsewhere on a day trip.
zanzibar is a lovely small island so do try to see stonetown and do the spice tour too, that was very interesting!
