Island-hop along the Quirimbas archipelago, marvel at the Arabian-infused African architecture — a true expression of Pemba’s history — and spend your days on beaches and in local villages before retiring to the comfort of AVANI Pemba Beach Hotel & Spa. A perfect island escape after a Tanzanian safari, this island provides a much more intimate experience than its big brother, Zanzibar.
More remote and undeveloped in comparison to Unguja, Pemba showcases the Indian Ocean island getaway before the tourists arrived. Guests can cruise by traditional dhow to other small islands in the archipelago, visit local market stalls in search of curios to take home with them, and of course, soak up the sun on a plethora of beaches and indulge in a variety of water-based activities.
Pemba Beach Hotel accommodates guests in its rooms, suites, villas, or garden apartments. All have balconies or terraces while some are interconnecting to suit families and friends. Self-catering options are also available. Guests can enjoy breakfasts and dinner at Quirimbas Restaurant, beachfront drinks at Clube Naval, and sundowners and snacks at Niassa Bar — all found at the resort.
