Welcome to Kubu Island


As unlikely as it may seem, given the current environment and climate, this desolate area may have been inhabited by people as recently as 500 years ago. On one shore lies an ancient crescent-shaped stone wall of unknown origin, which has yielded numerous artefacts, testament to those who lived here before the waters dried up (some think it served as a space in male initiation ceremonies).

The island (www.kubuisland.com) is now protected as a national monument, administered by the local Gaing-O-Community Trust.
