This island gained the worlds focus and being a part of UNESCO World Heritage place, it cannot be denied that Lamu Island is such a remarkable place. Amazing beaches, open-air activities, and hot locals lead the island to the most visited among Kenya's attractions.
One of the big attractions of Lamu Island is the Shela Beach. The place of the beach alone is a inviting spec; just a mile walk from the busy Lamu town where admiring surrounds and getting the locals hot smiles feel just right. Shela Beach is a wonderful delight where white sands, clear water, finely broken sea shells and local vendors selling homemade samoasas collectively highlight the gateway.
Dating back to the twelve century, Lamu Town is the oldest inhabited Swahili town in Kenya, comparable only to Zanzibar Tanzania.
With its very old fort, its wood carved doors, amazing markets and the ubiquitous donkeys the town is authentic and wonderful - no wonder UNESCO recognized it as a World Heritage place.
Just across the channel from Shela, the mostly uninhabited Manda Island offers the top spots for watching the charming African Sun setting behind the Lamu Island.
