The village of Shela is the most popular resort on the Island of Lamu.

The best beaches are to be found here, as well as the best sea views over the Indian Ocean.

Lamu’s active development as a tourist destination started in the far 70-s. Today the infrastructure of the island is great, as well as accommodation and dining in general.
