Coastal Kenya

Travel to Coastal Kenya – Exotic Coast & Indian Ocean

The Kenyan coast is lined with pristine white sand beaches fringing the warm inviting waters of the Indian Ocean. Here the wilderness meets the sea, and the ocean itself holds a world of spectacular coral reefs teeming with life and colour.

The coast is a place with a long and exotic history, its calm blue waters the traditional passage of the Arabian Spice Trade.

Along the length of this coast, Arab and Portuguese forts, old towns and the overgrown, deserted ruins of Swahili outposts bear witness to this fascinating history. In the winding medieval streets and bustling markets of Lamu and Mombasa Old Town, life has continued unhurried and unchanged for more than 400 years.

  • Find a beach hideaway that’s just right for you, then swim, snorkel or dive in the warm turqoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
  • Hire a sea kayak and paddle to nearby off-shore Marine Reserves teeming with underwater life.
  • Explore the World Heritage listed Old Town of Lamu, then hit the beach for some perfect island relaxation.
  • Safari and beach? What a holiday combination… Bush breakfast, beach BBQ, then boogie the night away!
