Mafia Island has great spots for kayaking and at both Kinasi and Lua cheia you’ll find free kayaks for touring the bays and beaches and for exploring the little islands around Mafia.
The kayaks are also designed to carry a cool box for drinks and snacks and have ‘dry’ compartments for storing towels and cameras.
We have always offered fishing in Mafia and now at Lua Cheia we are able to guarantee professional fishing for all species, including fly fishing for sailfish, wahoo, giant trevalley, barracuda, kingfish and a variety of tunas.
All of the local fishermen and water “taxis” use sail in Mafia; it is rare to find engines, which are usually only used by the long-distance fishermen and fish-buying boats. The sails are sewn by from madrouf, a rough trade cotton.
Kinasi Lodge and Lua Cheia have wind-surfers available free-of-charge to the guests at both . There is a boatman to help and move the boards to the beach.
