Pemba Island is the second island of Zanzibar archipelago, about 50km North of Unguja and 50km from the Tanzanian coast. The island, with almost no tourism, is ideal for retreating away from the modern world.
It is distinguished by mountainous relief and lush vegetation. The coast is mainly lined with mangroves, but there are also some nice white sand beaches.
The wealth of the island comes from the culture of cloves, tropical fruits and local vegetables.
One of the main attractions of the island is its rich marine life, with reefs and coral scarps that plunge to depths of over 800 meters.
The best months for diving are from September to the end of March while for those who don’t dive, the months of June to October offer the best weather.
