Mafia Island is a cut of the antiquated Swahili Coast that extends along the Tanzanian and Kenyan coastline.
Tongoni means ‘Place of Ruins’. In 1498, the famous Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama ran aground at Mtangata village adjacent to Tongoni. The main point of interest is the 40 tombs which are the largest such concentration in East Africa.
