Serenity.... A moving experience encompassing a romantic leaf bungalow built over the water, breathtaking sunsets, authentic village life and customs and the unique craft of manufacturing shell money still used in daily life for ceremonies. Whilst the lagoon doesn't offer beaches and places to lie in the sun, it does provide visitors with a close up view of the various artificial islands set among the natural islands and mangroves.
Serah's Lagoon Hide Away is nestled in the southern end of the Langa Langa Lagoon which is on the west coast of Malaita.
