Dive or snorkel off the Kigomasha Peninsula on Pemba

Formerly a trade centre, Pemba is now most famous as one of Africa’s most rewarding dive destinations. Ringed by coral reef on all sides, the best diving is off the west coast in the deep waters of the Pemba Channel. Look for turtles and reef sharks.
