The sunset cruise is a beautiful option for couples, families and friends to sit back and relax with a drink in hand and not a care in the world. Being on the Eastern facing part of the island we are unable to see the sunset from the island. Because an African sunset is something never to be missed, we offer a peaceful, relaxing cruise in the beautiful Chole Bay. After a busy day of adventuring or a lazy day of snoozing, jump on board your private, traditional dhow, for a relaxing sail alongside a fantastic sunset.
The boat will be waiting on the shore ready to depart at 17:30, you will be accompanied by a guide to ensure your trip goes smooth and a captain who will man the rudder and ensure a safe sail through the Indian Ocean. A first class view of the sun setting on the horizon. Even if it happens everyday, a sunset in Africa is a phenomenon that never ceases to amaze. The bursts of orange, red and pink on the horizon offer an inspirational feeling and a beautiful moment full of opportunities, which should not be missed.
All of the best beaches on Mafia are found in the North of the Island. Miles and miles of untouched coastline, with no fighting over space – just an endless sea of sand that slowly slips into the aquamarine, Indian Ocean.
This excursion offers guests to escape the touristy area of Utende and join a list of few on the unbeaten track to Kanga beach in the North West. The journey can be done by car or Bajaj and can take up to 2 hours and be a little bumpy depending on the state of the roads.
Once we have arrived and sink our toes into the warm African sand, you will have the chance to familiarize with your surroundings and have your breath taken away. During this time your guide will set up a shady area for you and place some mats for you to laze under. He will then discretely cook some fish and lobster in the traditional Swahili way and serve you with lunch and some coconuts, picked from a nearby tree.
Here on your private, endless beach you can sunbathe, swim or just spend the day chilling. It is possible to venture up or down the beach and discover yet more unpopulated paradise or simply sit back and relax and enjoy the view.
