Mnemba is a private island, which lies two kilometres north-east of the island of Zanzibar, just a short cruise in a motor boat. A pristine swathe of beach surrounds the island and the magnificent coral reef supports giant turtles and ghost crabs.
Accommodation & Facilities
Mnemba Island comprises just 12 beachside bandas, including a family room. Each of the en-suite cottages is bordered on three sides by tropical forest and overlooks the beach and coral reef. Each cottage has been hand-woven and thatched from tree branches and traditional Zanzibari palm-matting. A palm-covered walkway leads to the en suite bathroom and each cottage has a spacious outdoor verandah. The cottages are situated either side of the main living area where there is a dining area and adjoining lounge and bar. These areas have an open view of the beach and coral reefs beyond.
Spectacular tropical fish drift through the lagoons providing guests on Mnemba Island with excellent diving and snorkelling. Traditional dhow sailing trips, canoeing, fishing and windsurfing are also available.
