Bakau Guest House and Restaurant is truly an extraordinary experience for tourists. The ocean front rooms have a balcony and are affordable, comfortable and spacious.
The architecture of the building is phenomenal. Tourist would not even know about the 4 story floating staircase that leads to the tower that resembles a Light House. The gift store and artifact room is another secret gem that tourists must inquire about. Carvings, art, drums and other African are available to admire or purchase. A visit and stay at the Bakau House is strongly recommended. I visited for 2 weeks and stayed 5 weeks.
