El centro de apoyo nutricional se encuentra Rua da Republica, y la oficina de la Fundación y el taller de oficios están en el parque que hay al final de esa misma calle, junto al campo de futbol. La isla tiene pista de aterrizaje y se puede llegar en avioneta. Si no, 4x4 privado o chappa desde Pemba hasta Qsinga (120km aprox de pista de tierra) y luego lancha privada o lancha-chappa (1h).
There are few hotel rooms: two hotels with 9 seats each (Cinco Portas and Miti Miwiri), a super luxury hotel establishment (Ibo Lodge) and a very high profile guest house (Baibo). In addition, there are several local alternatives, with a lower price, among which is a camp site called Karibuni that has space to camp if you have a tent and that also has a couple of bungalows. The island is located in the archipelago of Las Quirimbas, tourist gem and unexploited (at the moment) of the country. Options: diving, snorkeling, excursions to other islands, white sand beaches ... Some islands of the archipelago are completely private and have hotel infrastructure. https://www.goatsontheroad.com/quirimbas-archipelago-matemo-island-rolas-island-paradise-under-a-mosquito-net-dariece/ https://elpais.com/diario/2011/06/04/viajero/1307221693_850215.html
