Pemba Island, Tanzania Coast
Situated some 50 miles to the North of the main island, Pemba island is Known as "The Evergreen Island" because of its lush vegetation and rolling countryside. Pemba is also famous for its immense and dramatic blue water drop offs along with pristine coral reefs teeming with marine life of all shapes and sizes. The Northern tip of the island is one of the world's great dive sites but only suitable for advanced divers due to the strong currents. The beaches are not as accessible as on the main island and the roads on Pemba are terrible. The warmth of the people and the unspoilt beauty of the island make up for the difficulties. Those wishing to visit Pemba island need to allow more time than for a visit to the main island. Learn More >>>

Mafia Island, Tanzania Coast
Mafia Island lies South of the main island close to the Rufiji Delta, just a short aircraft flight from Dar es Salaam, the Selous Game Reserve or Zanzibar. Less scenically interesting than Pemba and without the historic status of the main island Mafia has escaped the attention of tourism. At the Southern end of the island is Chole bay, a protected deep-water anchorage studded with islands, sandbanks and beaches. The clear, protected waters offer wonderful snorkelling, sailing and swimming.
