Pemba Island is one of the lesser known islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago, but a popular honeymoon destination. This pristine green island is truly one of the most beautiful places on the planet. If you are looking for peace, rest and a romantic atmosphere, this is the place to be. A tranquil hideaway and one of the best dive sites in the world.
Pemba Island is also known as the “Green Island” thanks to its fertile soil and lush, green hills and thick vegetation. This untouched island has lots of forests, mango trees and vast clove plantations. A third of the population depends on small scale farming (rice, cloves, cinnamon, bananas, cassava) and fishing.
Beautiful coral reefs
The coral reefs that surround the entire island are a magnificent playground for snorkelers and divers. Especially the Pemba Channel, with impressive marine life, is an underwater paradise. You can spot Marlins, Barracudas, Clown Fish, turtles, sharks, dolphins and even whales. Explore the range of watersport activities, from kayaking, kite and wind surfing to a romantic sunset cruise in a traditional sailing boat.
