Castaway Beach Camp
Is our new simple luxury camp located on Ras Bweni. Here we have eight large tents under tatched “bandas” with verandahs leading directly on to the beach.
A journey to the north takes the visitor to a completely different part of Mafia that is quite another world of vegetation, beaches and activities. It is 55 km from Kilindoni (the airport).
The stunning feature of the location is the 2 km of 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.
