Pangani is fifty kilometers south of Tanga. Long ago it was a very important commercial center, but today it is a fairly quiet village with endless and nearly deserted beaches thanks to not being very frequented by tourists. Some lodges have recently opened for the few tourists that are looking for the tranquility of a less traveled place.
Pangani is a four or five hour drive from the Tanzanian capital and about a six or seven hour drive from the north (Arusha). There used to be no flights connecting Pangani to Arusha or Dar es Salaam, but nowadays a company called Coastal Aviation has introduced these flights.
