Pemba Surrounding Islands
The most important towns in Pemba are Chake-Chake (the capital), Mkoani, and Wete, which is the largest city. The centrally located Chake-Chake is perched on a mound with a view to the west on a bay and the tiny Misali Island, where the tides determine when a dhow can enter the local harbour. Pemba is, with the exception of a strip of land along its eastern coast, a very fertile place: besides clove trees, the locals grow mainly rice, coconut, bananas, cassava and red beans (called maharagwe in the Swahili language). These islands include
Funzi Island
Jombe Island
Kashani Island
Kisiwa Hamisi
Kisiwa Kamata
Kisiwa Mbali
Kisiwa NĀ“gombe
Kuji Island.
