If you’re a nature lover, enjoy scuba diving, or are simply looking for a holiday destination where you can laze on the beach all day, then Chumbe Island is the place for you. The entire island is a nature reserve and marine protected area, so all guest accommodation on the island has been built in such a way so as to have absolutely no impact on the local environment.
Not only are the bungalows eco-friendly, but so is everything else as well, from the water and lighting supply, to air conditioning, and even the sewage. Non-organic products are avoided, and even the soap provided for guests is produced by the local women in Zanzibar.
Plenty of activities are to be had on Chumbe Island as well as the surrounding area, such as exploring the natural beauty of the reserve, snorkeling in the shallow waters through the spectacular and unique Reef Sanctuary, or just lying on the beautiful beach and watching the dhows drift by.
