Pieter's Place & CI Divers
Pieter Divers Place is equipped with lovely new rooms positioned in a small but lush garden below a massive, ancient baobab tree.
Pieter Divers Place neighbours Reggio Amelia, therefore it is also 100 meters from the beach and in walking distance from bars and restaurants along the beach (5 minits walk from the main Wimbe beach)
Rooms are en-suite with hot water and air conditioning, a small fridge and facilities to make coffee and tea. Pieter's Diver Place is five minutes walk from the main Wimbe Beach, and within walking distance of the restaurants and bars there. Great hospitality! Pieter also runs CI Divers from Wimbe Beach.
Scuba Diving in Pemba, Mozambique at Pieter's Divers Place, Pemba offers spectacular diving at all levels, from introductory dives for those with no experience to wall and drift diving for more advanced divers. A visit to the remote Lazarus Bank is a once in a lifetime experience for the most adventurous. PADI courses are also available. Apart from sensational corals and plentiful tropical fish, the Pemba area is home to several species of turtle, dolphins, the very rare dugong, and seasonally migrating humpback whales.
Pemba is a port town located on the south side of the world's third-largest natural bay, with a population of around 100,000. It is the most important center in Northern Mozambique, with banks, patisseries, supermarkets and restaurants, though it retains a rundown feel with its potholed streets. The town was built over rolling hills, and most people live in wooden huts set amongst the numerous thick baobab trees.The history of the people of the Cabo Delgado province weaves throughout many centuries of African, Arab and Portuguese sailing, trading and settling.
The town was founded by the Niassa Company in 1904 as
Porto Amelia, after a queen of Portugal. It was renamed Pemba at the end of Portuguese rule, in 1975.
Pemba is renowned for its Portuguese colonial architecture, and is a prime destination for water sports and diving enthusiasts as a coral reef lies close to the shore. Pemba has increasingly become a tourist destination, particularly for upper-middle class Mozambicans and South Africans, and international flights and new facilities are emerging steadily.
