About Pemba Island

Untouched and rugged, Pemba Island is blessed with a wealth of natural beauty, making it one of the best beach holiday destinations in Tanzania. With the warm Indian Ocean lapping at its pristine sandy shores and the endless African sunshine warming the air, it is hard to see why Pemba Island has remained such a hidden gem over the course of history. Despite being just over 100km from the famous traveller hotspot Zanzibar, the two islands are vastly different. The shores of Pemba Island are fringed with mangroves and lagoons and further inland the terrain becomes hilly and rocky, unlike the flat Zanzibar.
