Uroa is a small rural coastal village on central eastern parts of Zanzibar. Located in the Uroa Bay, approximately halfway between the villages of Kiwengwa, Pongwe and Chwaka; 21.7 miles (35 km) north of Zanzibar Town. Uroans mostly live on fishing and seaweed farming; tourism is also developing in the area, although to a lesser extent than on the south-eastern coast. It is a small and centerless village with resorts on the southern and northern side of its bay. Uroa Village stretches in a narrow, long line from south to north along the coastline, appropriately named Uroa Beach. The elevation of the town is only 3.2 feet (1 meter) on average.
