Activities

There is something for everyone at Manda Bay. One can enjoy the comforts and the beautiful setting, in addition to the activities on offer which include relaxing by the water or indulging in a massage. If you are feeling energetic there are water sports such as deep sea fishing in search of the Marlin and Sailfish, windsurfing, water skiing and scuba diving to name a few, cultural visits and dhow safaris. There is also a games room overlooking the sea, complete with a pool table, darts and table tennis.

Welcome to this water sports paradise. The setting is in a sheltered mangrove creek and the calm waters here are ideal for water skiing. Guests can ski at high tide, yet just outside the creek there is generally enough breeze for sailing, wind-surfing and kite-surfing. There is also provision for windsurfing instruction to beginners.

Manda has four ski boats and a large selection of skis and other equipment, including a six-man ocean rider (Banana), an air chair, super-screamers (doughnuts) and knee and wake boards. Likewise instruction is available for beginner skiers. The resort is closed from mid April to Mid July.
