Zanzibar & Pemba Island
Lying 50km to the north of Zanzibar, Pemba, is a true island. It rises from the great depths of the Indian Ocean, and is topped with green undulating hills and coconut and mango plantations. The sweet smell of the air, snow white delicate sand beaches, and the untouched coral reefs – make Pemba Island an exclusive delight. The island’s main attraction is marine life, which makes it an oasis far from the maddening crowds. The beaches are untrodden, and the dramatic and exciting coral reefs and cliffs plummet to depths of more than 800m. At the north of the island is Nungwe, with some of the best swimming beaches in Zanzibar, and outstanding natural beauty awaits on the very south, Menai Bay – Zanzibar’s largest marine protected area. A dive cruise to Zanzibar is a stop as rich in culture as it is in underwater life. After a long day on the ocean, visit the island’s most prominent and historical Stone Town, in the “old part” of Zanzibar City, dating back to the 19th century. Back aboard your journey on Over The Rainbow of London, romantic sunset cruises, night dives and wreck dives, await you on this remarkable island destination.
