Lovely, peaceful island. Stunning beach to swim, and curious primates.
Explore the island is a must
Snorkeling in the clear waters a treat

Came to Misali Island by mistake and it turned out to be the most beautiful mistake ever. With very few people on the island, the beach is clean and scenic. Clean water you can almost drink it. It is however more fun to go as a group. The adventure is more fun when shared.

You can't sleep over on the island, but lovely snorkeling off the beach, and interesting history. Most lodges can arrange for you to take a packed breakfast / lunch. Ablutions limited, remember to take toilet paper / tissues. Get there early.

Along with friends we have been to Misali Island for both scuba diving and snorkeling. We were all experienced divers with dives in many places in the worlds including Maldives, Red Sea, Caribbean sea, Indonesia, and so on. Honestly, we have never seen before a coral reef in such beautiful health status. Anthropic impact is still limited and the corals are many and colourful. The barrier is full of life with fish ranging from small butterfly fish or angel fish to the big Napoleon fish. Our experience went really beyond any expectation.

The island itself is small but is equipped with sunbeds and allow you to talk walks around. A ranger living on it control that everything follow the rules.

I wanted to go diving on Pemba Island and the guide I've found on tripadvisor was Khamis. I contacted via whatsapp, he speak English very well. He then connected me to Muhammed and Haji, both are government rangers and Diving masters. They are both very friendly, helping and welcoming. I was lucky to be able to stay on the island for a few days with the locals (only for adventurers 😀). I dived 5 time with Muhammad and Saeed is also a ranger and took care of everything. Thank you all for a great experience and good luck to all!

Khamis would help you with anything related to Pemba Island, his number is:
+255774338145
Haji's number (only phone for now):

We booked a day-trip to Misali Island through our lodge, Fundu Lagoon. The island is beautiful and isolated from tourists - you feel like you have the island to yourself. The beach is white and beautiful, the coral is unspoiled and the diving is amazing.

We spent the day on the beach and saw tuna fisherman and one other diving couple. Heaven!

Highly recommended.

A must-visit day trip for anyone interested in snorkelling or diving in the area; huge fish and coral populations make it well worthwhile, and the helpful hotel guides and marine park staff are great at explaining the native wildlife and geography to tourists.

Had the pleasure of spending some time and having lunch on the warm white sands of Misali. Got on shore after a dive and chilled out in the shade on a sun lounger while lunch was laid out. The island is uninhabited and therefore very quiet. Only other visitors might be local fishermen who come ashore. There is also this monkey who seems to be a cross between an immigration officer and mayor of this tiny island. His office was in a tree on the beach we landed on. He came to check us out and to see what was on the menu. After lunch the other divers went off for a second dive and I settled down in the shade as the ocean breeze lulled me to sleep.
Pack a lunch, get there, explore the island or laze around on a beach. Definitely worth visiting.
