Remote paradise with lots of character
Ibo Island was truly a unique and wonderful place - after 8 nights I felt almost like a part of the family and community.
Ibo Lodge's "own" temporary sandbank has to be experienced to be belived - snorkelling, relaxing or walking on the soft sand - all in the middle of the ocean and not a soul in sight. When not relaxing on the sandbank or around the lodge, the variety of options to explore different aspects of the island, its fascinating history or the mangroves were equally enjoyable.
Ibo Lodge's staff were wonderfully friendly and every lover of seafood will not want to leave again - lobster, crab, shrimp, fish, etc. all fresh from the surrounding waters (although I did enjoy the beef filet one evening to mix things up a bit).
In my view, Ibo can only be recommended for anyone looking for a unique island experience away from the masses.
Ibo Island Lodge review
An interesting and enjoyable experience.
We sshould have got some local currency from the ATM at Pemba airport, which would have enabled us to buy things in the village.
