Getting Here and Around

The best way to get to Pemba is to use one of the local internal flight companies like Costal Air or Zanair that have daily flights out of Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam. Most resorts will arrange a boat transfer. Because distances are similar no matter which resort you choose, it's roughly between $45 and $50 for a taxi and boat ride from Chake Chake airport to your accommodation on the North and South sides. Moving around the island is expensive and not particularly easy to arrange because there is limited local transport in the resort locations. There are ATMs in Chake Chake only; if you need money withdraw it before you get to your lodge as driving distances can be from 40 to 50 minutes.
