The gateway to the north, Pemba sprawls across a small peninsula that juts into the enormous and magnificent Pemba Bay, one of the world’s largest natural harbours. Established in 1904 as administrative headquarters for the Niassa Company, Pemba was known for much of its early life as Porto Amelia. Today it’s the capital of Cabo Delgado province.

Pemba is renowned for its Portuguese colonial architecture and is a prime destination for water sports and diving enthusiasts as a coral reef lie close to the shore.
