In 2008 the BBC made a documentary about the worlds oceans. One of the DVD’s was about the Indian Ocean and its Coastal Waters, and on this DVD was a section dedicated to Kisimani Mafia, the ancient town that once was on Ras Kisimani. In 1872 it was hit by a hurricane and partly dissapeared in the ocean.
