“Best reef in East Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Mafia still has amazing pristine reefs with a vast array of hard corals and a huge variety of fish, all the size they should be!
With whale sharks and humpback whales it's an incedible destination

Pristine nature, great amount of fish: the fishes are surprisingly friendly and let you go nearer then any other place I dived. Take care of current and visibiity.
