This unique island hosts a fully protected coral reef sanctuary and forest reserve and is an internationally acclaimed conservation area. There, you will be able to experience one of East Africa’s most pristine coral reefs.

During a day, you will have the opportunity to snorkel through one of the best-preserved shallow reefs on the East African Coast, explore the Chumbe Forest Reserve with its unique flora and fauna, and climb a lighthouse with stunning views of the island and Zanzibar.
