Mnemba Island

Discover Mnemba Island

For true barefoot luxury, Mnemba Island is the perfect private island escape. Less than a mile in circumference, the island offers a remote and serene beach experience; surrounded by some of the best dive sights in Africa, you can enjoy the company of prolific marine life, with turtle season around April to August time. Ardent divers will fall in love with the coral reefs around Mnemba and watersport enthusiasts will love the scuba diving, windsurfing, and snorkeling. The island is ideal for honeymooners, remote, private and very romantic.

There are only 12 chic beachside bandas at Mnemba, which offer rustic simplicity. Thatched dining and sitting or bar areas boast beautiful open views of the beach and spectacular vistas of Zanzibar beyond. Calm turquoise seas surrounding the island and offer irresistible snorkeling and swimming directly from the beach, at all tides. The size of the island makes it intimate and relaxed. Choose exactly how and where you would like to spend your day and the team will make it happen.

Please note, Mnemba Island is scheduled to close towards the end of March until the end of September 2024 for a complete reconstruction of the lodge.
