Kenya Beach Holiday

KENYAN COAST About 7 hours from Nairobi by road and 1 hour by flight

The perfect place for a beach holiday and some of the finest deep-sea fishing in the world. The history of the coastline goes back over a thousand years. The Indian Ocean coastline that forms the Eastern border stretches for some four hundred and eighty kilometers from Somali to Tanzania with palm fringed pearly white sandy beaches. Extending from North to South lies a spectacular coral barrier reef with wonders of under water exploration in the blue lagoons and creeks. These attractions together with superb accommodation facilities make the Kenya Coast an incomparable holiday for both beach and nature lovers. It is possible to swim in the warm clear waters of the Indian Ocean all year round. The Kenya coast is divided into distinct resorts, namely:- Mombasa, North & South Coast, Malindi and Watamu, and Lamu each having its own unique characteristics and attractions.

Mombasa has a harmonious blending of the great cultures of Africa, Asia and Europe. The Old Town with its narrow streets with fascinating place of antiquity worth seeing. The 16th century Fort Jesus is a major attraction. The North Coast and South Coast are long stretches of idyllic beaches that are fringed with swaying palms, casuarinas, oleanders and frangipan. The Mtwapa creek with its abundant birdlife and Bamburi nature trail on the north are a must for nature lovers. Diani/Chale Marine National Park and Reserve, Kisite Marine National Park are places with a dazzling array of techno colored fish and coral gardens which are worth visiting.

Malindi & Watamu are renown for its beauty and diversity of marine life. Malindi's history dates back to the 12th century. Here time stands still and centuries of civilization have not altered the courtesy and charm of the people. The Gede ruins are a few kilometers from Malindi and are a fascinating glimpse of Islamic culture and village life. The ruins were mysteriously abandoned in the 17th century.

LAMU ISLAND At 200km North of Malindi lies a haven from civilization, Lamu Island is a unique medieval Swahili town with no roads or vehicles, its streets designed wide enough to allow only the passage of camels and donkeys. On a shopping spree there are carvings, brass & gold, Arab sea chests and lots of intriguing artifacts, not forgetting a visit to the interesting museum.
