|Native name||Baía de Pemba (Portuguese)|
|River sources||Lúrio River|
|Ocean/sea sources||Indian Ocean|
The Pemba Bay is east-facing and is located in the area of the city of Pemba. It is hemmed in largely by the Pemba peninsula which contains the city and is accessed through a relatively narrow channel. The Lúrio River empties into the sea just to the south of Pemba Bay. It is a notorious location for the illegal trade of ivory. Operators such as Kakazini offer trips around the bay for about US$40 per person. Several hotels overlook Pemba Bay including Londo Lodge, which has "beach-facing villas overlooking the bay, a restaurant and a range of water sports".
