Kenya Coast

Scroll Down

Kenya is home to vast stretches of white sandy beaches lapped by turquoise seas, lying on the coral reef which runs fairly continuously along the east coast of Africa. The Kenya coast is easily combinable with a Kenya safari with air connections direct from the parks.

There is no question that swimming in these seas or simply strolling the soft white sand is a fabulous experience. Fishermen float by in their dhows, palm trees swoosh in the gentle breeze, the aquamarine sea hosts an array of colourful fish. You are unquestionably in Africa.

We prefer to skip Mombasa and Malindi and head south to Funzi Keys and Msambweni. Also, Diani beach a popular destination with many hotels and private houses dotted across this beautiful stretch of coastline but some great options. We have selected those hotels which we consider to be a little more off the beaten track and therefore offer our guests somewhere a little more secluded.

Our favourite beaches off Lamu and to the north at Kiwayu are not recommended at the current time.
