Discover the undiscovered
“Trekking across its lushly vegetated, fertile, hilly terrain, I quickly realise why Pemba is known as ‘The Green Island’. I pass numerous smallholdings and vast expanses of clove trees. Pemba’s rural charm is intoxicating...”

Just 50km north of Zanzibar is the relatively undiscovered Pemba Island. While few make the trip across the channel from its more-illustrious neighbour, those that do find themselves well rewarded… and you’ll have things pretty much to yourself.

Although, not a beach destination – much of its coastline is lined with mangroves and tidal creeks and lagoons – there are a few good stretches of sand to enjoy. Diving is Pemba’s main draw, with steep drop-offs, untouched coral and abundant marine life – including whales, sharks and manta rays. The deep-sea fishing in these parts is also superb. Pemba also has a growing reputation for its voodoo and traditional healers, with people from across the region journeying to the island in search of a cure or to learn the tricks of the trade.
