The largest of Ssese’s islands is Bugala, some 34 km long, with Luku, its northern settlement and tip lying just off the mainland coast near Bukakata. The main centre is Kalangala, and both Luku and Kalangala are linked by matatu and bus. The best way to explore the island is by bicycle or on foot, with wonderful views of the islands and lake from many vantage points on the island. The majority of Ssese Island accommodation is located on Bugala.
