Chumbe Island is a great location for a 95% Robinson Crusoe experience (after Friday arrived 😉 … the 5 percent missing just come from the LED light for the night and the cool box of beverages). In seven handmade cottages you’ll feel like being stranded.

Your private beach „playground“ will look like this ..

Beside from the beautiful scenic there is a famous reef just in front of the island where you may have guided snorkeling tours twice a day.

Other Animals

The most prominent inhabitants of the island are the giant coconut crabs … the largest crab dwelling on land. 700! of them are your neighbors and you will get close to them after dark. The babies and some adults are blue like this one …
