Prison Island or “Changuu” Island is the middle island of the three visible ones from Stone town. The prison on this island was built in 1893, which was later used as a Quarantine Hospital. Once a main hub for slave trade, nowadays the island offers the chance to explore the old prison and slave history as well as an encounter with giant tortoises which were brought  to this island from Seychelles by Sultan Said in the 1820’s. Enjoy your stay along the peaceful location and beach offering by this beautiful island.

From Stone Town it takes approximately 20 minutes getting there by a wooden boat powered by an outboard engine.
