Mafia is the smallest island and it is considered as the “youngest brother” out of the 3 main islands off the coast of Tanzania (Zanzibar and Pemba are the other “brothers”). The moment your feet will stand on the ground of the island, you will become addicted to the relaxed atmosphere and the slow-paced lifestyle of this place.
Mafia Island is mostly famous as whale sharks island, since they visit the water around the island during their migration circle, from October to February every year. Mafia is also known as an incredible diving and snorkeling destination, as the water contains some of the most beautiful coral reefs with rich and diverse wildlife. The island is not very popular yet, and you will be able to see the authentic lifestyle of island people in addition to untouched nature and marine life.
