Thanda Island is one of the world’s most exclusive island getaways, a paradise for you to enjoy in complete privacy with family and friends.
Nestled within Tanzania’s Shungi Mbili Island Marine Reserve, Thanda Island is 8ha in size, 1,1km in circumference and 350m wide, and surrounded by coral reefs, which protect it from stormy seas. This adds to the Island’s suitability for families. All you need to do is fly to the international airport at Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s capital city, and fly directly to the Island by helicopter to nearby Mafia Island, where you will be taken to the island in a boat.
Thanda Island is a tropical island with a single luxurious villa and two traditional Tanzanian Bandas in the Indian Ocean, off the east coast of Tanzania.
Situated in its own marine reserve, you can bathe in blue heaven with the gentlest giant of the ocean, the whale shark, and watch sea turtles nesting. Here, you can rest, rejuvenate and enjoy adventure sports, where shades of turquoise infuse your days and tropical spices your nights.
WHY CHOOSE THANDA ISLAND?
- You’ll find yourself spontaneously relaxing while you restore your vital force in a serene but adventure-filled environment where time dissolves.
- Walk through the bush behind the Villa and onto a white sand trail to visit the white, grey and black Egrets that inhabit the Island.
- The Island invites you to enjoy simple, exquisite pleasures… strolling along your own private 1,1km beach or exploring the 8ha Island where the only sign of human habitation is the occasional, traditional fishing dhow in the distance.
