Very relaxing for couples but not really for children. On the beach you are practically alone. The trip to the neighbouring island is very nicely planned and executed. The sand is absolutely white and the water have an inviting temperature

Dear Julia, Thank you for your message. We would recommend you fly to Pemba, thereafter you can book our helicopter transfer to Anantara Medjumbe Island. It is a 45 minute helicopter transfer from Pemba Airport to Medjumbe Island. Road is not recommended from Durban as it is over 3000km to Pemba and the road conditions are unfavorable at times. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any additional information. We look forward to welcoming you to paradise. Kind regards Medjumbe Island

Hi Fallon, Thank you for enquiring. You may bring the normal carry on rollers bag. We have the duffel bag just incase your suit case does not fit in the Heli. We can keep some of your belonging in AVANI Pemba Beach which is based in Pemba. The duffel bag is always a great choice as it will fit easily in the Heli. We look forward to welcoming to Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort.
