North Mafia

North Mafia

Things to do - general

Located at Bweni Village near the northern tip of Mafia is a lovely promontory called Ras Bweni. “Ras” stands for peninsula, and from here one has a fine view of the superb sunsets over the Rufiji Delta and the moon rising over the Indian Ocean.

North Mafia Island, BWENI

This part of Mafia is where the beautiful beaches have been formed. In contrast the Chole Bay side of Mafia is superb for diving and snorkelling.

The stunning feature of the location is the  beach stretching away in both directions, all yours….the sand is white and pure and one can always swim, despite tidal changes. And the complete isolation from any other tourist facility or commercial activity of any kind. Solitude, nature, complete relaxation.
