Chumbe Island Highlights

Chumbe Island is an eco friendly accommodation which only makes use of environmental friendly materials and products. Freshwater is supplied from rainwater, which is captured from a specially designed expanse of roof, during the rainy season. The water is filtered and hand pumped through a solar-powered heating system for guests to use. Lights are powered by photovoltaic panels on the roof which provides environmentally friendly 12V energy for normal usage. The walkways, nature trails and beach areas are not lit up with illuminators as this protects the feeding and breeding patterns of the nocturnal animals, such as the rare giant Coconut Crab (Birgus latro) which grows up to 1meter in size. Individual powered torches are used instead.
