Mafia Island is smaller than Zanzibar and this makes it even more attractive for rest-seekers. The long existing Marine Park status of a good part of it is the reason that diving and snorkeling is very nice. The bay -formed by Mafia island and fishermen’s Chole Island- makes it possible to dive throughout the year, also when the Ocean is too rough sometimes. On the west coast you can spot the big whale sharks during December-March.
We have good connections with Mafia Island Lodge, which offers everything you need for a great time on the beach, where you can also find the excellent PADI Mafia Diving Center.
