Port of Pemba (Port Amelia) Passenger Lists

Pemba is a port city in Mozambique. The town was founded by the Niassa Company in 1904 as Porto Amélia, after a queen of Portugal, at the peninsula's south western tip and has grown around a port.

Port Amelia (Pemba Bay), 120 miles north of Mozambique, is a small place, but is the headquarters of the Nyassa Co., and possesses what is said to be the finest deep-water harbor in all Africa. Pemba Bay is, roughly, 5 miles by 7 miles in extent, and ocean-going vessels can anchor within 900 feet of the shore.

If a railway line is built inland from here, this port will undoubtedly become important, but up to the present time there has been little development, of the surrounding country, which is rich in possibilities. The exports are rubber, oil seeds, copra, ivory, and wax.
