Lamu, Town Island and Archipelago, all of the same name, lie 2 degrees below the Equator along Kenya’s coast. The Archipelago is a chain of islands separated from the Mainland by a narrow channel bordered with dense mangrove forest and protected from the Indian Ocean by coral reefs and large sand dunes. The many historical sites are proof of the area’s long and rich history which, when combined with the natural attraction of its tropical setting, make Lamu a wonderful place to visit. The naturally protected harbour on its northeast side led to the founding of Lamu Town, which became a center of coastal commerce. Today, Lamu’s economy is still dominated by maritime activities: shipping fishing, mangrove cutting and shipbuilding.
