Chumbe Island is beautiful and the marine life is great. The reef is not at its prime, but still beautiful and there are signs of regrowth. The day trip is not cheap, but well worth it! The money from the day trips and from the...More

Really excellent experience overall. We only did the day trip, but the snorkeling, lighthouse, and nature walk were all well run. Though you’re close to shore and Stone Town, the island was just isolated enough for us to really get lost in the natural beauty...More

We did a day trip, which was amazing. The snorkelling and the forest tour (which ended at the top of historic lighthouse) were both great. We really did not want to leave and envied those who stayed for the night in the eco bungalows. Great...More
