Currently, the community of Srithanu has an indisputable natural beauty, where it is possible to appreciate beaches, abundant tropical vegetation, small food establishments and settlements. Furthermore, the villagers live in a non-invasive manner with the environment, using local materials for the construction of their dwellings and other establishments. Also, their main economic source comes from fishing and agriculture of their lands as well as local crafts and art. As a result, it is essential for the villagers to sell their products to tourists or people who come temporarily to visit the area.
