Overview

South of Mombasa to the border with Tanzania, lies one of the most beautiful white sands beaches in Africa, edged with mangrove forests inviting you to walk while you feel the sands between your toes. Try some extreme water sports, a camel ride for the tourist experience or book a bike tour inland for a glimpse of life in local villages. 

Get caught up in the Swahili rhythms and the rise and fall of the tides, life here moves to its own beat. Thanks to the history of trade of the Africa, India and Arabia, the coast has a unique feel to the rest of Kenya. Its people, the coastal people, have created a real passion you will feel in their way of life and flavor to their food.

The South Coast of Kenya is the epitome of an ideal beach destination; over 25 km of white sandy beach bordering the warm water of the Indian Ocean sheltered by an unusually long coral reef. 

It is, unknown to most, not only a mecca for those seeking a tranquil break with some sun, sand and sea but it is also an outdoor and adventure sport hotspot. Activities available in this amazing destination include kite-surfing, SUP, scuba diving, water kayaking, snorkeling, sport fishing, whale shark diving, jet skiing and even skydiving. Also available are mountain bike and quad bike safaris, while a short drive away you can visit the Shimba Hills National Park, Funzi island, Shimoni town.
