Amazing island to discover the Swahili culture and incredible beaches and nature. Different than Zanzibar (Unguja), Pemba is full of hills and rivers. Enjoy!
Pemba is a lovely place to visit but beware! Bring your own entertainment.. There isn't much to do except relax and sit back. There is no or horrible wifi at the hotels on the island. On the other hand families can bond better. Loads of mosquitos and lizards :-/
