Pemba Island ~ Beach Holiday

Pemba Island Beach Holiday

ZanzibarSolo / Groups

Overview

"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.

Green island

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.

Package Itinerary:

  • Day 1:
    Your tour starts at Dar es Salaam airport. Transfers to the airport are not included. You will fly with Coastal aviation to Pemba Island! Depending on your arrival in Dar es Salaam you can choose to go on the morning or afternoon flight.
    Pemba Island has been separated from the mainland of Tanzania and Zanzibar for decades, leaving an untouched and pristine island of great beauty and fertility. The mosaic of forests, swamps, mangroves, hidden beaches, and lagoons is scattered with the ruins of mosques and tombs mostly reclaimed by the forest – sites that date back to Arab domination when Pemba Island was seized by the Sultan of Muscat (Oman).
    Upon arrival, the driver/guide from Manta resort will be waiting to take you to Manta resort on the Northern tip of the island. Elevated and crafted along an idyllic island beach, The Manta Resort offers privacy, romance, adventure, and water sports on East Africa’s finest island sanctuary. It is not a traditional 5-star resort but a unique experience!
    In the coming 3 nights, you will sleep in the underwater room! This is the heart-stopping experience that awaits you. The floating structure, Swedish engineered, provides three levels, those above the water clad in local hardwood, and each an experience in itself.
