If sun worshipping, swimming and snorkelling are not enough for you; try kayaking to explore the lagoon and mangrove forest, a sunset dhow safari to nearby sand islands and the coral reef, or a visit to the nearby historical town of Bagamoyo.
Sunset Dhow Safari
At 5.30pm, when the sun is starting to droop, we can organize a boat to take you to a deserted sandy beach, where your host will take you on a short evening stroll. On your return the chairs will be ready and the 'bubbly' on ice - sundowners surrounded by the serene Indian Ocean.
Sailing / Boating
The island has a Laser I and a Laser II sailing dinghy for use by resident guests, plus windsurfers.
There are also a couple of kayak canoes, which are great for a more leisurely paddle around the lagoon and to explore the outer reaches of the island.
Alternatively let the local fishermen take you sailing in their traditional Ngalawa fishing boats to explore the lagoon or, if the conditions allow, they will venture further out to show you their fishing grounds in the Zanzibar channel of the Indian Ocean.
The island is protected by coral reef, and so not only does it avoid long periods when the tide is out, but it also has snorkelling from the beach. Snorkelling equipment is available to borrow.
The island forms a small private nature reserve, and there are many resident small mammals; bushbabies, wild pigs, genets, baboons, duiker and suni antelope to be found amongst the indigenous forest and mangrove. Bird life and flowers are abundant.
