Mafia Island

Mafia Island is part of Tanzania's Mafia Archipelago, in the Indian Ocean.
Mafia is the one island off Tanzania's coast that encourages visitors to explore its offshore islands and sand bars.
Mafia is primarily known for its ocean glory, the Marine Park which was created to protect its reefs. The diving, fishing and snorkelling here are the best in the entire region, infinitely better than those to be found on Zanzibar (although note that the beaches on the main island are not nearly as good as Zanzibar's).

While most accommodation and things to do on Zanzibar are located on the main island.
Although officially apart of the United Republic of Tanzania, Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous region. This means that your passport and visa status will be checked on arrival at immigration. You don't need a specific visa to enter Zanzibar.
