In Yoff village, take a look at the Layen Mausoleum, a shrine to the founder of the Layen Muslim brotherhood. Residents of Yoff are noted for their strong Islamic culture – so smoking and drinking are not allowed and visitors should be appropriately dressed (meaning long skirts or trousers). It's right on the beach and its floors are made of sand.
