An Island in Kilwa, the southern coast of Tanzania houses the highest levels of coral and fish biodiversity in the region. Snorkeling or scuba diving on a coral reef is unforgettable. Rukila is a perfect base for snorkeling, picnicking, watching birds or even sleeping at night as fishermen do.

Location and Access

This small island is 12 km away from Masoko harbour. It takes only 1hr 30 min by boat to reach the place. At low tide, the island can also be reached by foot after a 3 hours walk on the sand, but this can be dangerous and requires an experienced guide to avoid being trapped by the ocean.
