Introducing Pemba

Pemba sprawls across a peninsula jutting into the enormous and magnificent Pemba Bay, one of the world’s largest natural harbours. It was established in 1904 as administrative headquarters for the Niassa Company and for much of its early life was known as Porto Amelia. Today it’s the capital of Cabo Delgado province, the main town in Mozambique’s far north, and gateway to the Quirimbas Archipelago and an endless string of white-sand beaches. Although lacking the charm to be a destination in itself, the town makes for a relaxing and enjoyable stop, with almost perpetual sunshine and blue skies, a long beach nearby and a lazy, languid ambience.
