The sandy beaches of Ras Kitau, on the channel opposite Shela, are a magnet for beach lovers. The southern tip of Ras Kitau harbours coral cliffs and outcrops that are an amazing place for walkers wishing to explore. There is the ruin of an old fort on the cliffs which once protected Lamu Island from seafaring invaders. The old cannons remain intact and positioned to volley cannons at unsuspecting ships.

Ras Kitau hosts a beach lodge, and several private villas for accommodation. There are also a couple of restaurants offering visitors a laid-back, barefoot paradise.
