Lamu Island on the Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean getaways are rarely as fine as the blend of beach idyll, history and culture available on Lamu Island, just off the coast of Kenya. Sailing through warm ocean breeze and sea on wooden dhows, exploring the narrow, donkey-clopped paths of the old town and floating spread-eagled and still in the azure water under a benevolent sun makes time at this old Swahili trading post slow to a soothing pace, letting you unwind after your adventure. Without doubt your dreams of Africa will persist long past a rest at Lamu, but here is the place to bask in their immediate memory before the long trip home.
