Spearfishing in Zanzibar Archipelago

Spearfishing in Zanzibar Archipelago

It is one of the most famous archipelagos in the world; the Zanzibar Archipelago. Made up of the two main islands of Pemba and Unguja - the latter better known as Zanzibar - the Zanzibar archipelago evokes feelings of mystery, adventure, pristine nature, and trade. From the 16th - 18th centuries the archipelago was indeed the main centre for trade along the eastern coast of Africa, and to date Zanzibar is remain daring seafarers and savvy traders. The two islands of the archipelago are distinctly different. Where Unguja offers world class beaches, quality accommodation, and the famous Stone Town to tourist masses, Pemba Island is remote, unexplored, and more attractive to adventurers.
