PembaPemba is a port city in Mozambique.
The town was founded by the Niassa Company in 1904 as Porto Amťlia, after a queen of Portugal, at the peninsula's south western tip and has grown around a port. The city is renowned for its Portuguese colonial architecture. It was renamed Pemba at the end of Portuguese rule, in 1975.
The city lies on the south shore of Pemba Bay, the third largest bay in the world. The modern port, the international airport, world-class hotels and restaurants, and a network of newly-repaired roads combine with the historic charm and colonial architecture of the old city to give a fascinating and vibrant destination situated on this stretch of Mozambican coast.
In central Pemba there is an authentic local market or Souk, where arts and crafts, as well as traditional silverware can be bought - a bargain hunter's delight.
Pemba is also renowned as being a prime destination for water sport and diving enthusiasts as the coral reef lies close to the shore. The abundant fishing waters at St Lazarus Banks are also within easy reach. There are many pristine, white beaches along the coast, including the famous Wimbe beach to the north.
