Asembo bay lies on the shore of lake Victoria. Here there’s an old shopping center called KAMITO that was started by Indians. The Indians inhabited and were doing business at this place in pre and post-independence time. They shipped their merchandise through the lake from Kisumu.
Later the business was not doing well and they moved back to Kisumu. But traces of the Indians can be seen, through the temple, the buildings and the cemetery that they left behind. The locals doing business now occupy the buildings.
At the pier in Asembo bay, a ferry (Kenya railways) used to operate twice a week to Kisumu. At the pier you can see Ndere Island (where there are wild animals), the Homa hills, and the Uyoma peninsula.
A boat ride would take you to the different Islands on Lake Victoria. Islands like Rusinga Island, Mageta Island (which is occupied by fishermen), Mfangano Island, Sifo Island, Sirafuongo Island, Ruodhi Island, and many other small islands.
