The town is the seat of the Anglican Diocese of Tanga and has a cathedral church dedicated to St. Michael and All Angels. It also has a teacher training college and a number of secondary schools.
The district is drained by tributaries of the Pangani River.
The Magunga district hospital is the home of the NIMR Korogwe Research Laboratory. The building was designed by the Danish architect Jakob Knudsen (see also picture below). Great effort was taken to adapt the building to local environment and climate. The building was officially opened on 19 September 2008 and has since been used to support malaria vaccine trials.
