Kick back, relax, put your feet up and enjoy the view. Whether from a bungalow in the midst of a baobab forest, or from a beach-side chalet, the view over the dazzling blue waters of Pemba Bay is sensational. The coastline stretches out in either direction for miles on end in the third-largest bay in the world.
Spend your days lounging on white beaches, wade out into the waters to take a refreshing dip in the warm waters of the protected bay, or get your scuba gear on for one of the most sensational dives of your life: the town of Pemba in Northern Mozambique is one of the best-kept secrets of this magnificent country.
The coral reef just offshore offers some of the most spectacular dives around in the Quirimbas Archipelago, teeming with thousands of species of tropical fish, four different species of dolphin, whales, sunfish, turtles and game fish. For game fishing enthusiasts, the waters at St Lazarus Banks brim with game fish. Northwards, Wimbe Beach is one of the most scintillating beaches in Mozambique, fringed with palm trees and untouched beaches that stretch out for miles on end, lapped by the calm blue waters of the warm Indian Ocean.
Inland, a bustling market with local wares and silverware rewards travellers with curious, bizarre and cosmopolitan sights, sounds and gifts. Excellent cuisine, including the world-famous seafood, world-class resorts and the opportunity to hire boats and enjoy sundowners while the amber sun sets over another gorgeous Pemba sky, add to making Pemba one of the most desired getaways in Mozambique.
