Around Kilifi / Watamu

Sports and Recreation

Watamu Marine National Park – This is a prime Snorkeling and diving center that welcomes many visitors a year. This area is even frequented by diving professionals who journey here for the excellent reef and crystal clear waters. Visitors can enjoy snorkeling, deep sea diving, glass bottom boat tours, dolphin and Giant Grooper sighting. From September to April this attraction has so much to offer you will find yourself coming back to get it all in.

Sight Seeing

Arabuku-Sokoke Forest – The largest indigenous coastal forest remaining in East Africa is a remnant of times long gone when most of the coastline from Mozambique to Somalia was covered by rich lush forest. This land is occupied by Elephant, monkeys, baboons along with a colection of rare primates and birds only found under it’s canopy. Walking this nature preserve is an enjoyable adition to any coast holiday.

Gendi Ruins – This 13th-to 17th-century Swahili ruin is an eerie city shroud in mystery. It can be found in no Portuguese or Arabic text from this period even though both of these people dominated this region. Maybe they simply never came across it but we might never know the facts. The site includes the ruins of a great Palace, Gendi’s Great mosque (one of 7 on this site). while staying at the Kenya coast, the Gendi ruins are simply not to missed!

Food and Drink- At both the resort hotels as well as around the area there are plenty of dinning options including african, Italian (some great pizza), Indian, German, as well as a collection of food markets for the finest in coast fruits and vegtables.

Nightlife and Entertainment- Bango and African beats can be found in the area and there are no shortage of pubs and pars to grab a drink after a long day enjoying the ocean and the sight seeing.
