Pemba Island

Pemba is the second largest island of the Spice Archipelago, named Al-khudra, "the Green Island" by the Arabic mariners in reverence of the profusion of lush fertility they encountered after their journey south along the arid coastline.

Pemba rises from the Indian Ocean on its own granite pedestal, a continental landmass in itself, topped with verdant hillscapes that tumble through clove plantations to the signatory, pristine white beaches.

The reefs and channels make for East Africa's finest diving and highly rated game fishing, whilst the Pembans themselves embody the coastal Swahili in their dignity of manner and refinement of welcome.
