This Island is the most famous of the offshore islands. It was once owned by an Arab trader used it for rebellious slaves and later sold to a British General, known as General Mathews who converted it into a prison to condemn Zanzibari citizens to isolation. However it has never been used as such. One of the Island’s attractions are giant tortoises shuffling through the trees with the parlance that the old age brings. The tortoises  are believed to have been brought over from Aldabra – an Atoll off the Seychelles.

The small beach found at the island disappears when the tides are high, but it is superb to swim in the crystal clear water with splendid coral reefs. The island  is well-forested, making it ideal for  nice for a walk.
