Shela Village, situated on the edge of its 14 km pristine beach, is only a ten minute walk from The Fort.

A maze of narrow, sandy alleyways, where the only oncoming traffic is likely to be a donkey or two, Shela hosts a number of restaurants including – the infamous Peponi Hotel Restaurant & Bar, the island’s meeting point. Here you can relax with a drink or meet with many of the international guests and residents of the island or mingle with the local fishermen and artists.

Wandering the alleyways you will come across a variety of boutique shops carrying unique souvenirs, arts & crafts, fine clothing and jewellery.
