On the surface, the island is utterly mellow. The ocean around Vamizi, which are private for the Island guests, are bristling with fish and fantastic diving. Some of the diving here is said to be the best in the world; the same can also be said for the deep sea fishing.

All amongst miles of beaches just waiting to be explored.
