Who's not in need of an island escape? To feel the sun against your skin and the sand beneath your toes is one of life's greatest pleasures for many people. And this is yet another way in which East Africa scores. After watching the great migration in the Serengeti National Park, what better way to recover from all the excitement than by drinking mojitos on a beautiful Tanzanian beach?

   For understandable reasons, many sun worshippers flock to Pemba, Zanzibar or Mafia for their Tanzanian island fix. Whether you're a scuba diver, a sun baby, or just in need of a good pampering, enjoy this gallery of highlights from these three islands that will have you packing your flip-flops and bikini!
