Lamu is a serene, tropical island where life unfolds at a tranquil and relaxed pace. It also has a rich history as fascinating and mysterious as the meandering streets of its medieval stone town. On this island, you'll come across undulating dunes and endless beaches, where quaint villages are dotted amid mango and coconut plantations. Out on the waters, traditional dhows sail and bob under the sun. And then, of course, there's the old town, which began as a 14th-century Swahili settlement. The influence of Portuguese explorers, Turkish traders and other visitors all shaped the heritage and culture of the region, and you can get a taste of it all today when you explore.
