Shela Village is located on the south eastern corner of Lamu Island close to a pristine sand dune lined beach stretching over 12 kms. The village is located 2.5 km from Lamu Town and boats ply between the two destinations; at low tide it is a leisurely 45 minutes walk to Lamu along the seafront.

Shela was a simple fishing village about 30 years ago and is now a favourite spot for vacation homes. Most of these holiday homes maintain the traditional Swahili architectural design, and many have contemporary additions for stylish living. Shela offers visitors a wide range of accommodation including chic hotels, a range of guesthouses and many private holiday villas.
