Wimbi Beach
Miles of white sand beaches, the swaying fronds of tall palm trees, clear blue waters and total relaxation are what Wimbi Beach is all about. Wimbi (or Wembe) Beach is but a short distance from Pemba. The town itself is worth a visit, with a huge market where you can buy just about anything.

But it won't be long before you head for the beach. Lying on the warm coral sands is exercise enough for a lot of people, occasionally stirring to buy a coconut or fresh bread. For the more active the beach offers the whole range of water sports, plus good fishing and diving. There is also the option of heading toward the Querimbas Archipelago, a string of islands stretching north towards Tanzania. The diving is even better from here and the crumbling colonial buildings strangely compelling.
