Mafia Island Resorts & Hotels

While Zanzibar has become a popular tourist destination, little known Mafia Island remains a pristine, tranquil destination for an undisturbed beach holiday. Dominated by clear turquoise water, sandy beaches and mangrove forests, Mafia Island is a 35 minute flight from Dar es Salaam. If you are seeking an undisturbed beach resort or hotel, then this is a place worth considering.
NB: Prices include international flights & transfers!

On arriving at the tiny airport with it’s grass runway, it’s immediately obvious that the pace of life here is slow. A sandy main road leads through the capital of Kilindoni, and through sleepy farming and fishing villages. The coastline is where you’ll find mangrove forests, a few short stretches of golden beach and a brilliant turquoise sea.

Historically poor communications with the mainland, and being somewhat less well known than Zanzibar, has kept Mafia Island ‘original”. A steady trickle of visitors are unanimous in heaping praise on this unique place. Mafia is one of the safest places in the Indian Ocean where hustlers are non existent.
