Island of Pemba in Tanzania

The island of Pemba has always been renowned as well for its voodoo and healers who use traditional and natural approaches of medicine to heal from various diseases. This is another reason that encourages a number of travelers who spend their holidays in Tanzania to explore the island of Pemba.

Although the Island of Pemba is not really a destination for swimming, there are some sandy beaches where diving is really rewarding. Many of the travelers who spend their vacations in Tanzania are usually interested in diving and snorkeling in the amazing beaches of the country.

On the other hand, unfortunately, the tourism industry in Pemba, mainly because the main streams of tourists who travel to Tanzania are guided towards Zanzibar, is still basic. However, the infrastructure of the island is slowly developing with many facilities being built or at least planned.

It is actually part of the charm of Pemba is that the island is still mainly undiscovered and would be a perfect destination for adventurous travelers who spend their holidays in Tanzania and who are fond of exploring new places that are off the touristic tracks.

One of the top attractions of Pemba is Chake-Chake bay and the main town of the island. The bay is a wonderful location for diving and snorkeling trips that attract quite a large number of tourists who visit Tanzania and spend some time in the island of Pemba.

Among the most important interesting places to explore in the Chake-Chake Bay is surly Misali, a small island located near the bay that locals prefer to call it a part of heaven. With astonishing coral reefs and a number of rare types of animals and birds, a visit to Misali is highly recommended for travelers who tour Tanzania.

Tourists spending their vacations in Tanzania who are into natural scenes and adventures, there is the Bendera Cave that is believed to be inhabited by the spirits of the ancient people of Pemba. This cave is always worth a visit for tourists who travel to Tanzania.
