The Kenyan coast features uninterrupted stretches of white sand beaches framed by towering tropical palms and warm, inviting turquoise waters. Its stretches of coral reefs are perfect for diving and snorkeling. Sometimes, at low tide, you can walk out on the coral reefs for over a kilometer and explore the myriad sea creatures: from ‘dayglo’ hermit crabs to sausage-shaped sea cucumbers.
The coast is a paradise for those willing to relax and enjoy the lust of Kenyan white sand beaches and crystalline water of the Indian Ocean. For those who have time and are willing to discover the coast, apart from the rich and exotic gastronomy, there are plenty of options available.
In the sea: scuba diving, fishing, kite surfing and snorkeling in the coral reef.
In the mainland: visits can be organized according to everyone`s interests and preferences, such as to Old Town in Mombasa, Gede ruins, Shimba Hillls National Reserve, Fort Jesus Museum, Hell`s Kitchen, Arabuko-Sokoke National Forest, Haller Park
Water sports, City tours, Shopping excursions, Cultural visits – or simply relax and do nothing but sip your favourite drink and watch the exotic Arab dhows sail idly by.
