We are trying to raise environmental awareness among the community so appreciate that you treat the island with respect and only dispose of rubbish in the appropriate waste bins.
We also have a problem with disposing of plastic so please be mindful.

Location

Lamu, Kenya

The Lamu Archipelago is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Made even more unique by the fact that there are no cars. Everything is reached by boat. You can sail on a lateen rigged dhow round the islands, go snorkelling, or sip sundowners on a sunset sail. Manda and Shela are blessed with long sandy beaches - great for swimming, walking or running
