We were fortunate enough to spend 3 nights on Chumbe Eco Island recently. If you love nature and want to escape the crowds this is the place to go! The staff were really wonderful and made us feel very much at home and special. Food was great. Snorkeling was awesome. The dhow trip was amazing. Accommodation is 'eco' but still comfortable and well organized. We really enjoyed the open feel of the bungalow with the sounds of the sea and forest ever present. Here you can forget about everything and just relax and enjoy!
