Are there any places on the island to get shots of the local people?

Not really in this place, there is quiet nobody ! The best id to go in the villages (Chwaka just in front), ord on other beaches (Breezes Beach) where you regularly cross people (fishermen, women, riders). Or in Stonetown of course ! But plse, ask for permission before.

This spot is located: Zanzibar, Unguja Island (main island). Chwaka Bay, Michamvi. Located on the east side of the island.
How to get to this spot: Coming form Stonetown (airport connected to Nairobi / port connected to Dar Es Salaam), easy to drive on a good tarmac road, to the east coast. The fisher village is Chwaka, where you should ask for a small boat to go to Michamvi (45 mn). The magic is to arrive by the sea and discover this peaceful and virgin place. If you can arrive by earth, it's is not a good idea : first the road from Chwaka to the Michanvo Cape are quiet inexistant, that means you should take a different and longer way from Stonetown), Second, toy should discover the place by the sea, it s amazing and can offer dreamy shots during the sail.
Access to this spot is: Easy, just hire a boat with fishermen at the village, and respect this nice place and nice people. Please, do not invade this place, just go with a very very small shooting team, to preserve the magic of the place. No fees.
Best time to go to this spot is: from the morning till 4 pm (sunset stats at 6pm, 1h need to go back earth)
Insiders Tip: (peaceful swim except meduses...)
