Pemba, Mozambique

The coastal town of Pemba lies at the mouth of an enormous bay. Its lively atmosphere and interesting buildings (especially in Baixa, the old town) draws its visitors, who mostly come for the beaches and coral reefs. Because this little town is so popular with travellers, many bars, restaurants, resorts, diving, snorkelling, fishing and boating centres have sprung up like mushrooms.

Wimbi beach is about 5km (3mi) east of Pemba, and its reef is close enough to swim to. On the way, there’s the Makonde workshop which sells wooden carvings at good prices.
