Crab Shack

Watamu, Kenya

Arrive by tuk-tuk, stroll over a 200-metre boardwalk high up among the mangrove trees to reach this rustic wooden stilt hut, which boasts panoramic views over Mida Creek. The restaurant is run by the Dabaso Creek Conservation Group, an eco-initiative that promotes conservation of the surrounding area and provides education for local fishing communities. Crack open a cold beer and tuck into locally farmed shellfish and flavoursome African sides. The signature crab samosas with refreshing tomato and mango salad are the perfect prelude to grilled lobster and generously spiced vegetarian curries.
