Lamu Island is popular with backpackers, who come for its pretty beaches and cheap accommodation. The town itself has an old fort, a donkey sanctuary (and lots of donkeys--but no cars), and many mosques. The population is primarily Muslim, so dress accordingly.

Lamu is a beautiful island off the coast of Kenya. The old town, which dates back more than 500 years, oozes history - with narrow winding streets and a laid back atmosphere - is now a UNESCO world heritage site. The beaches are nice as well.

As part of the Lamu Archipelago of Kenya, Lamu is the country's oldest living town. It's remote, boasts the best-preserved Swahili settlement in East Africa - and, until recently, used only donkeys as transport, which is a top reason to visit.

Warm, friendly and peaceful. The streets are too narrow for cars, and cats and donkeys roam freely. There are a couple of great, inexpensive seafood restaurants along the waterfront. Hire a dhow for a day of sailing and a little fishing.
