Shela Town

enjoying some quiet time at a beautiful beach, deserted thanks to Somalia

Shela, Kenya

Duration: 

Friday, June 10, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Shela Town: beautifully maintained and not overrun by tourists thanks to Somalia
  2. Religion: only Christians were seriously working while Moslems are celebrating Ramadan
  3. Stop Over: probably the only place to get a drink (non-alcoholic) after a day at the beach
  4. Peponi: staying right behind the notorious, but seasonally closed beach hotel (missed)
  5. Fort of Shela: walking by the fort, not knowing that one could also stay there(missed)
