Though Pemba is the gateway to the Quirimbas Archipelego, those islands are still a ways away. We decided to spend all our beach time in Pemba and not go to Ibo, or any of the other islands of the Quirimbas Archipelego.

From our hotel room, we had a beautiful view of the Indian Ocean and the nightly sunsets were gorgeous. We went into town only once, to change money, as the hotel only took Meticais or Visa and not US dollars. Other than that small excursion, we spent all our time exploring the shore line near our hotel.

The inter-tidal zone was quite interesting. We saw star fish, multi-coloured coral, sea anemone, moray eels, sea urchins, and many other interesting creatures. Swimming in the sea was also fun.
