Home to serene sun-bleached beaches, mysterious mangrove swamps and brilliant blue waters dotted with dhow sailing boats, Lamu Island is the perfect destination for an alternative beach break. The island is part of an idyllic archipelago off the shore of northern Kenya in the Indian Ocean and is the beating heart of the country’s Swahili culture, which is a blend of African, Arab and Indian influences. Lamu, the largest town on the island, was once a thriving port and an important trade centre. Now, this UNESCO-protected town is a haven of peace and tranquillity. You’ll find wandering donkeys in
the side streets and a charming bend of old and new architecture with crumbling forts sitting beside elegant rooftop cafes.
