Pemba Mozambique

Learn more about the coastal resort of Pemba in Mozambique

Often confused with 'Pemba Island' in Zanzibar of Tanzania...Welcome to the very Northern part of Mozambique, to a city called Pemba (formely known as Porto Amelia). The city lies on the southern side of Pemba Bay

Pemba & Quirimba Islands is considered to be one of the best diving sites in the world!

A bustling topical city with all the main attractions nearby

With the tourism industry increasing through-out the years, more money has been brought into the city and country, leading to foreign investment, modern development and an ever improving infrastructure, that includes: several 5 star / world class hotels, Holiday resorts, excellent restaurants, repaired roads (more repairs are currently going underway), a modern port & International airport with weekly flights to Johannesburg now available for South Africans (links also to Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam) and much more! A great nightlife can also be enjoyed in Pemba and around the holiday resorts.

Pemba is well renowned for its magnificent portugese colonial architecture - most of these beautiful buildings and structures can be found in the older parts of the town (called the Baixa). You will noticeably see the busier side of the more modern part of the city, set up on a hill above the port. Here you can find the common facilities cities usually provide such as: banks, exchange bureaus, restaurants, shops and supermarkets and if you are interested in either buying something or a bit of 'window-shopping',then do head off to the famous 2km long craft market that sells absolutley almost anything, including radios, cell phones, beds, cloths, fruits & veg and much more!

Quick Fact:

Pemba Bay is a VERY large bay, in fact, its the 3rd largest natural bay in the world (13,000 HA) and the Largest Bay in Africa from Ponta do Diabo to Ponta Maunhane! It is said that if every ship in the world had to dock in Pemba Bay, there would still be more space!
