Manda Bay is a large open bay lying between the mainland north of Lamu Island, the north end of Manda Island, Manda Toto Island and Pate Island. There is a vibrant coral garden for snorkeling and crystal clear waters near Manda Toto for swimming. This is the perfect spot for a day safari from Lamu or Shela on a sailing dhow where the captain and his crew will cook lunch while visitors snorkel and swim. 

The area has just one chic beach lodge, which has its own airstrip and offers game drives behind the camp to view a variety of local species including buffalo. The historical Manda ruins lying close by are extensive and extra charming for not having been extensively excavated.
