Paquitequete, a large Kimwani settlement, was the original village which gave origin to Pemba Town. It is still a colourful neighbourhood, different from the center of town itself where, daily, dhows unload fish, macuti (palm leaves), and mangrove wooden poles for construction, coming from the islands.

Paquitequete is the traditional district of Pemba, a small fishing village with its narrow streets on the white sand. In the far west of the city and overlooking the great bay, the third largest in the world. Plan your visit to this town to be in the early hours of the morning we discovered their mosque, school and life around the beach that serves as the port and market.

Why should you visit Paquitequete when you travel to Pemba?

If you are looking for a good place to enjoy the hospitality and culture of the locals make sure to visit this small district of Pemba. This might not be the safest district to wander after dark, but it is literally a hidden gem that has been caught in time with a strong Muslim influence and a friendly atmosphere.
