Sights in LamuEdit This
The Lamu Museum in town on the waterfront is a great place to spend an hour or two. It’s small, but packed with historical and cultural insights. Entry is KSh 200.
Dhow crews are ready and willing to take you to any sights around Lamu. For a chance of seeing dhows being built or repaired, take a trip to Matondoni Village. An even better day trip is to the famous Takwa Ruins on Manda Island. There’s a mosque, tomb, and other abandoned buildings dating from he 15th century. Other day or half-day trips include snorkeling, diving, or fishing. Many endeavors come with a seafood lunch provided by the dhow crew. All prices are flexible and you need to bargain.
