Pemba Island - Tanzania

Pemba Island is one of the top dive locations in the world and it is no wonder most people come here for the excellent dive sites. It is the second biggest island in the Zanzibar Archipelago and famous for its unspoilt coral reefs with visibility often 60m or more.

The variety of life underwater here is absolutely staggering. Large game fish chase the smaller and brightly coloured reef fish, but divers often also see manta rays, giant groupers, lots of different types of shark, turtles, dolphins and even whale sharks.

The island is an excellent place to relax on a beach or participate in one of the many water sports. You can go for a sunset cruise, check out the endemic wildlife and its many birds or book yourself on a spice tour.

Pemba has so far retained a unique character, different from the rest of Zanzibar and Tanzania in its culture and traditions. With few visitors reaching the island, the travellers that do will encounter a truly memorable experience in this off-the-beaten-track destination.

Book your cheap flight to Pemba with Tripindigo today and dive right into the fascinating underwater world of this top dive location.
