Ideal place to stay for a visit to Ibo Island
Two colonial properties converted into a relaxed island lodge
Cinco Portas guesthouse is a waterfront property with stunning views over Ibo Island’s mangrove channels and a great base from which to explore the local culture, heritage and beaches. To get there you can take to the air or water with plane and boat transfers from Pemba on the mainland.
The beautifully restored colonial buildings are surrounded by a beautiful, tropical garden and refreshing swimming pool. The seven rooms on offer are varied in style, but all are simply and traditionally furnished with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. The Cinco Portas restaurant provides stunning sea views along with delicious meals made with fresh, locally sourced products. They even serve Ibo coffee that they roast and percolate themselves.
Activities at Cinco Portas can be arranged daily and, during busier periods, can be shared between guests to reduce costs. The waters in this region are famous for their amazing scuba diving experiences and the lodge will be happy to arrange a trip for you with the local dive operator. Other excursions include sandbank snorkelling and picnics, island visits, kayaking and historical tours of this fascinating island.
