Manda Island Review

Just across the channel from Shela, the mostly uninhabited Manda Island once held one of the area's largest cities. The once-thriving community of Takwa was abandoned in the 17th century, and archaeologists have yet to discover why. Reached by taking a dhow up a baobab tree-lined creek, the ruins are a popular day-trip from Lamu and Shela.
