Divers exploring Pemba Island’s coral reefs can expect to encounter a stunning array of underwater features and marine life. The island’s reefs are known for their dramatic drop-offs, underwater caves, and vibrant coral gardens. Marine life is abundant and diverse, with regular sightings of colorful reef fish, octopuses, and various species of rays. Additionally, lucky divers might spot larger marine creatures such as dolphins, turtles, and even reef sharks. One particularly fascinating feature is the Mesali Island Marine Reserve, which offers some of the best diving spots with well-preserved coral and a high density of marine biodiversity.
