Chumbe Island Coral Park is a private nature reserve that was developed to protect and conserve one of the last coral islands in the region. Stay in environmentally-friendly accommodation on this tiny remote island that is home to East Africa’s best-preserved shallow reef.
Stroll around this island paradise on your own or explore the forest reserve and other island areas on guided walks with an experienced ranger. Snorkel through the 33-hectare Coral Reef Sanctuary where you can see a variety of fish, stingrays, lobsters, and even hawksbill turtles. Guests can also view the old lighthouse and mosque, the island’s very own historical monuments, take a trip to the Visitor and Education centre, bird watch, and look out for humpback whales during August and September.
The island’s lodge and accommodation are designed to have almost no impact on the environment. Stay in one of the seven eco-bungalows that look out on to the sea and are only meters away from the beach sand and clear island waters. Located between the forest and the sea, all the bungalows contain a bathroom, living room, and sleeping platform.
