Additional information

Fisherman Island is a beautiful small islet hidden on the North Eastern side of Chole Bay.
Its name comes from the periodic presence of Mafian Fisherman who stop over to dry their catch
before returning home. Fisherman Island is home to a beautiful beach, bordered on either side with
rich mangroves. Riddled with shells, fisherman Island can only be reached on a high tide, making it
an excellent alternative for the sandbank.
Your day will start with a journey out to one of Mafia’s stunning snorkel sites. After enjoying the
marine park, you will make your way through an in-conspicous channel that slowly widens into a
sheltered area of beautiful aquamarine water, topped off with your own private island for the
afternoon. Your guide will set up a shade and some mats for you to relax under and kick start your Island
getaway. On the Island itself it is possible to sunbathe, explore the mangroves, or swim in the crystal
clear water just in front of your camp. Whilst you settle in, the team will start to set up a traditional Swahili, fish BBQ and prepare your lunch.
Unfortunately you cannot hide away here all day. As the sun lowers in the sky, the ocean follows with
it, prompting you to board the dhow aagain and wind allowing continue the theme of relaxation with a sail
back to Mafia.
