    Ibo Transportation

    The island is accessible by dhow, the Arab sailing vessel, from Tandanyanga. The boat can only go with high tide so it's better to ask for the best time to go.

  • The only bar on Ibo

    Ibo Restaurants

    There is only a bar in Ibo where they serve cold beer and soft drinks. You can also ask for seafood and if they have some left they will give it to you. If you plan to eat here just go in the morning to make reservations so that they know what to buy.
