The Kenya Coast Beach Vacation

Add this to wishlist

‘Where there are breakers, there is also a door through the reef’

Enchanting and fascinating, the Kenyan Coast is a place of waving palms, white-walled mosques, black-veiled women, and fleets of Dhows, which harness the trade winds as they have done for centuries past.

Fringed by white beaches, and shaded by coconut palms, the silver ribbon of the Swahili coastline offers the ultimate tropical paradise. Bright white against the blue sky, the winding lanes and colourful market places of a traditional 13th century Swahili town.

The Kenyan coast is a fabulous place to chill out on gorgeous beaches, swim in the Indian Ocean, and enjoy the Swahili food, hospitality and culture. You should be aware that the coastline here is tidal, though this is more noticeable in some places than others.

The unique Swahili culture, which is a colourful fusion of African, Arab and Portuguese influences, has created a pace of life, a style of cuisine and a mosaic of architecture, heritage, myth and magic that is nowhere else in the world.

The coast north of Mombasa has perfect, palm fringed beaches. Nyali, Vipingo, Kikambala and Shanzu all have world-class resorts, and Kilifi Creek is a popular stopping off point for international yatchsmen. The reefs teem with coral, endless varieties of fish, sea turtles and dolphins, making it a favorite spot for divers. A full range of water sports is on offer, including sailing, waterskiing, jet skiing, kitesurfing and parasailing and more.

The coast south of Mombasa features tropical forests, mangroves, white sand beaches and coral reefs, and is equally popular with watersports lovers and those looking simply to get away from it all. Some of the best dive sites are found around Kisite Mpungani Marine Reserve, which is home to Manta rays, and those diving in the outer reefs along the coast in February and March are virtually guaranteed to spot whale sharks.
