Misali Island Tour


A little patch of paradise surrounded by crystal waters and some of the most stunning coral reefs in the archipelago: a trip to Misali never disappoints. There are underwater and terrestrial nature trails, and you can arrange guides at the visitor center. On the northeast of the island is Mbuyuni Beach, with fine, white sand and a small visitor center. About a 10-minute walk south of the visitor centre is Bendera Cave, believed to be inhabited by the spirits of ancestors and used by some Pembans for traditional rituals. To the west are the larger Mpapaini Caves. Nesting turtles and breeding seabirds favor the beaches on its western side, which have been set aside just for them. There are no permanent settlements, though the island is in active use by local fishermen. Camping is not permitted for tourists.
