Mafia Island Beach Holidays

When people think of Tanzania and its tropical islands they think of Zanzibar (Ugunja) and Pemba. This is because of their white sandy beaches and turquoise colored waters, offering many delights for those dreaming of a tropical escape leaving out, Mafia Island.

With mere 45 minutes by charter flight from Tanzania’s capital Dar es Salaam, the island remains unspoiled and little-visited alternative to other Indian Ocean locations around Zanzibar and along the coast. Mafia and its surrounding archipelago islands including Jibondo, Juani and Chole have a great deal to offer. However, as with Pemba, Mafia has better diving opportunities than Zanzibar and also one of the locations in the world where you can swim with whale sharks!

The terrestrial and reef ecosystems are fascinating and over the years are a great deal for snorkeling and scuba trips giving visitors an unforgettable experience. The diving here is truly World-class with a vast variety of corals and fish. The friendly people are one of the greatest attractions on any holiday and you will soon realize that. As for all of Tanzania, the people of Mafia are extremely friendly, self-confident but humble, and always ready for a laugh.

Mafia Island is a remote beach escape, that’s a little less explored than some of the more popular destinations in Tanzania though it seems to be a well-kept secret in the Indian Ocean worth exploring. Feel free to go through our packages and get in touch with us
