A traditional wooden dhow will take you on a 20-30 minute ride to Prison Island. The islet was formerly used as a private detention facility for disobedient slaves. Later a jail was constructed, but never actually used. Today the island is a small tourist resort, famous for its giant tortoises. Our tour guide will give you a short introduction to the islet’s interesting past and later you will be able to spend time sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, or walking around to see tortoises and peacocks.
