Mafia has not had the same boom in tourism of the neighboring Zanzibar mainly because this island is more stingy than Zanzibar as far as beautiful beaches and turquoise lagoons are concerned.

On the eastern side, its marine park offers nevertheless intact, unbleached coral gardens, a large variety of tropical fish and some of the best diving sites in East Africa suitable both for novice and experienced divers.

On the western side, the channel of Mafia hosts year-round year-round a population of whale sharks that attracts visitors from all over the world.

If you also love to walk and spend your days sailing among islands and sandbanks, Mafia can really be your destination.
