Kiwayuu (alternate spelling Kiwayu) is a small island in the eastern part of the Lamu Archipelago, situated in the Kiunga Marine National Reserve. The main economic activity is fishing, and there is one school, no clinic and one well on the island. The main attraction for tourists on Kiwayuu are the tidal pools and snorkeling/diving pools located on the eastern side of the island (the Indian Ocean side).

The nearest hospital is on Lamu Island outside of Lamu town. To get to Kiwayuu from Lamu, you must take a dhow (7 hour trip) or a motor boat (2 hour trip).
