Make sure to take a trip into the adjoining village to see how the locals live. You will discover that the atmosphere is both friendly and welcoming. You will be received as a guest - don't miss out on the chance to get out and about and visit one of the village projects to which your stay directly contributes.

You can stroll around town by yourself or arrange for a guided tour. Whatever you do make sure to make a turn past the boatyard, where dhows are built by master craftsmen much as they have been for centuries. Remember 
to cover mid-riff, knees and shoulders as per local custom.
