Pemba hotels – both combine well with Ibo

Most of the hotels in Pemba can be found along the popular Wimbi beachfront, from five-star luxury to friendly backpackers along the same 12 kilometre sandy Mozambique beach! Pemba is in the far north of Mozambique and is another world, all on its own.

Pemba town bustles with activity – choose a restaurant to suit your tastes daily. Enjoy this stepping stone for the solitary Quirimbas Islands that dot the Indian Ocean offshore. Ibo Island is a great place to move on to from Pemba if you want to learn more about Mozambique’s past and her local people – visit the ancient ruins and stay in Ibo Island Lodge, true luxury island hotel quality!

For many travellers, Pemba is a step closer to paradise, a place for aviators, travellers, storytellers and businessmen – a place with a Portuguese flavour and right on the edge of the Indian Ocean. Pick a hotel to suit your tastes when you land for the first time in Pemba and be stunned by the wonderful location, the view from your room over the ocean, and the full moon if you are lucky.

Not in ones wildest dreams would one believe that such a wonderful place exists. Undeniably a lost paradise in the Indian Ocean. I feel we have been steeped in Ibo’s history and culture and guilty pleasure of staying in this beautiful colonial lodge filled with staff who have surpassed the word service, they have provided us a haven of personality, generosity and damn good food and wine! From collecting fine porcelain pieces on the beach, moonlit walks, sunset dhow trips and crab claws. This has been a truly memorable trip. “A life not reflected on is a life not lived, I feel I have lived on Ibo!!
