Welcome to Pemba Island

Lying around 50kms north of Unguja and 50kms east of mainland Tanzania with a population of around 400,000 Pemba is a real gem of an island for those looking to get away from the crowds. For us visiting Pemba is really about giving yourself the chance to immerse yourself in island life. 

The majority of Pemba is dominated by small scale farming as the island is more fertile and hillier than Unguja. It is well known for its clove trees, with this being one of Zanzibar's largest exports, and the island is home to around 3.5 million clove trees. Locals also grow rice, bananas, cassava and much more on the island. Pemba is also home to some of the very best diving anywhere with untouched coral and abundant marine life. This is a major draw for visitors, along with those interested in game fishing and pure relaxation away from larger tourist areas. 

On Pemba Island we recommend the fun and exciting Manta, or the Robinson Crusoe feel of Fundu Lagoon.
