Pemba Island


Pemba Island, known as "The Green Island", is the second biggest island of the Zanzibar Archipelago.Most of the island, which is hillier and more fertile than Unguja, is dominated by small scale farming. There is also large scale farming of cash crops such as cloves.Pemba is also famous for its rich fishing grounds and it is becoming well known for its dive sites, with steep drop-offs, untouched coral, unspoiled reefs and very abundant marine life.With the booming tourism industry in neighboring Unguja (usually referred only as Zanzibar), more adventurous travellers are seeking out the less-crowded Pemba for peace, tradition and pristine uncontaminated nature.
