Mozambique is a big country, with hundreds of islands scattered along its coast...
Pemba & mainlandMozambique's gateway to the Quirimbas Archipelagos is the mainland town of Pemba. Don't confuse this with the Tanzanian island of Pemba, with is far to the north of here.
Mozambique's town of Pemba is a fairly neat but unremarkable town, although it does lay claim to have one of the world's largest natural harbours - the large and sheltered Pemba Bay.
On the edge of town, a short drive from the airport, is the convenient Pemba Beach Hotel.
A long boat ride across the other side of the bay from the town is the new Londo Lodge.
About five hours' drive north of Pemba is Guludo Beach Lodge.
