Lahami Bay is prized with its natural surroundings, a myriad
of marine and terrestrial marvels. Lahami Bay always
had a sound commitment to protect and conserve those natural
treasures. A few easy acts can help sustain the delicate
The simple rule is not to touch the corals. When snorkelling
or diving, stepping on the corals or hitting them with a fin,
damages coral that probably will not recover in a lifetime.
Apart from this loss, many of those beautiful coloured fish
would then lose their habitat and their source of nutrition.
Sea grass often grows in the shallow waters adjacent to the
beach. Avoiding entering the sea from areas where sea grass
grows would help to conserve this very important habitat which
supports many marine species.
Seashells under the water play an important role in keeping
the coral reef healthy, some of those even feed on reef damaging
starfishes keeping their numbers balanced. Even the empty
shells washed down on the beach are used as a shield by the
hermit crabs. Seashells are not to be collected, but
rather admired where they are.
Growing in the sea water, mangrove trees are natural
wonders by all means. The shallow areas adjacent to the
trees are filled with their roots and several marine species,
and are to be avoided.
Spectacular formations of sand dunes covered with naturally
growing shrubs extend over the Lahami Bay area.
The dunes are sand sources essential for retaining the beach
formation. Walking on the dunes would displace the sand,
and damage the shrubs which hold the dunes.
