Pemba Island

Lying 40 km to the North-East of Unguja is Pemba or "The Green Island". The island consists of three main towns: Mkoani, Chake Chake and Wete.

It has many historical monuments which include three ruined tombs (Ras Mkumbuu), a fort at Chake Chake and the Mkumbuu mosque ruins. The East of the Island are the remains of the late fifteenth century "MKAMA NDUME" fortress at Pujini.

The Island has some of the best unspoilt beaches and is also very rich in underwater coral gardens. Misali - a small island on the east Coast of Pemba is unique for snorkelling and diving. The Pemba Channel is regarded as the best sport for game fishing.

To the northwest of the island is the Ngezi Forest Reserve covering an area of 14 sq km, the only remaining natural forest in Pemba.
