The coastal town of Pemba lays claim to some of the finest coral reefs in all of southern Africa. Brilliantly coloured coral is but a short swim from the white sands of Wimbe Beach. Divers and snorkellers swim among a myriad of exotic fish in crystal clear water. Naturally, the profusion of seafood makes time spent here a gourmet’s delight. The beaches are wide, sandy and clean, and lined with palm trees. A coral reef protects the beach and guarantees safe swimming as well as good snorkelling.
