Location

Quiet and unspoilt, it is likely you will have much of Manda Beach to yourself for most of the day. Its 2.5 kilometres of sheltered sands sit towards the southern tip of Manda Island and look out across the Lamu channel to Shela village less than a kilometre away. Towards the ocean there there are coral heads and rock pools and the remains of an old fort and cannons from the early colonial era.

Manda is home to the beautiful Takwa Ruins – the ancient remains of a Swahili town deserted in the 17th Century – accessed along a narrow channel through the mangroves which fringe much of the island. The ruins are highly atmospheric, particularly in the late afternoon light and make a memorable dhow-excursion. On the ocean side of Manda, through the shallow Mkanda channel, pretty little Manda Toto (‘Baby Manda’) Island is a nice place to swim, snorkel and picnic.

For meals and drinks out we recommend strolling along the beach to Diamond Beach Village which has a lovely low-key bar and delicious pizzas, or heading a few hundred metres north to the smart Majlis Resort or Lamu House Beach Club. Shela Village is moments away across the channel, and both Lamu Town and Manda Airport around 3 miles to the north and a few minutes away by boat.
