Bwejuu Island

It was not easy to reach the island and even more difficult to leave it. The waves on the ocean were so big that our little boat was covered with showers of water all the time. But it was worth that, Bwejuu is the most beautiful island in the Mafia archipelago thanks to its position and its sandy banks, Bwejuu Island is less than 2 kms long and no more than 200 meters wide at its widest point.
