The Rock Restaurant – Valentine’s Day Dining Destination
Zanzibar Island, Indian Ocean
Where will you dine this Valentine’s Day evening? If you happen to be in Zanzibar, an island located off the east coast of Africa, the Rock Restaurant makes a most excellent choice for romantic seclusion.
Rock Restaurant perches near the shore of picturesque Michanwi Pingwe beach and, in precarious fashion, hovers over the Indian Ocean on a rock formation. One must wade or be transported by boat to Rock Restaurant, depending on the tides. Given its location size, the menu is compact and focuses on seafood with a Zanzibar twist.
Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania in East Africa and is the largest island in the Zanzibar archipelago located 25 to 50 kilometers off the coast of the mainland. The beaches of Zanzibar are lovely and tourism plays an important role in the island’s economy, along with the cultivation of raffia, the palm tree varietal. Zanzibar is still considered one of the Spice Islands, producing cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper.
For couples celebrating Valentine’s Day… and, on an amusing note for those who shun the holiday… wherever you dine this romantic holiday—whether for love, guilt, or both—keep in mind that love transcends all and that your consistent bonding of togetherness may save two other lives. :-)
