Pemba Island Facts
This paradisiacal zone lies off of Africa’s east coast, in the Indian Ocean, with hilly terrain comprising most of the landscape and a soil much more fertile than Zanzibar’s. It’s no wonder small-scale farming has flourished on Pemba Island. One of three landmasses collectively called the Spice Islands, Pemba is known for growing cash crops like cloves (having about 3 million clove trees sure does prove that point). With Portuguese, Arabian as well as British influences, Pemba Island is beautiful to look at and possesses a stock of historical importance to check out too.
