The Coast Province region

“The Kenya Coast, where lie a ribbon of lagoons, sandy white beaches, all fringed with Palms and Casuarina trees and strung together like pearls on a string, offers tranquillity, peace and relaxation, the ideal setting for a holiday in paradise.”

The Kenya Coast is serviced by Mombasa, the coastal gateway to East Africa, situated some 500 km South East of Nairobi. Both cities are well serviced with frequent international and domestic flights with good onward connections to the beach resorts situated in and around the North and South Coasts of Mombasa, Malindi, Watamu and Lamu.

Most of the Kenyan Coastal Resorts offer a diverse range of activities, where there is something for all. For the Cultural experience, the Kenya coast nestles in myriads of culture dating as far back as the 12th Century, the numerous game parks, lodges and forest reserves allow for safaris to be arranged at short notice, or you can just relax .............and................. watch the world go by.

Kenya offers some of the finest beaches unparalleled in the world, fringed with Palm and Casuarina trees, Mangroves, the whitest of sands and lagoons abundant with tropical fish and corals. Our equatorial coastline is the home to numerous species of wildlife and crustaceans as well as being a main breeding ground for the Hawks Bill turtle. Many of the Kenyan beaches are protected as nature reserves and national parks.

Weather conditions on the Kenyan coast are ideal. Although the summer months of December and January can be quite hot, the average monthly temperatures rarely exceed 30 degrees centigrade.


Malindi town is situated 160km North East of Mombasa on a good road, where the area is well served with frequent flights from Nairobi and Mombasa. Malindi is one of the major beach resorts in Kenya and boasts some of the best beaches in the world. The Old Malindi Town continues to be shrouded in mystic and history, dating back well over 800 years, where it is believed, the old port of Malindi, was one of the main trading gateways between the East Coast of Africa, Arabia and Asia. Malindi town itself is believed to have been visited by Arabs from Oman during the early 12th Century. Malindi continues to portray the quaintness of a small fishing village and is catered for well with markets, boutique shops, supermarkets, casinos, discoteques, hotels and resorts.

Malindi is used as a base for those wishing to explore the coastline, which is engulfed in a multitude of marine parks, tropical rain forest reserves and national parks. Most of the wildlife parks will have the more exotic game that Kenya has to offer, which includes elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion, cheetah and the illusively shy leopard.

Diving is available at most of the resorts on Kenyas North coast. Under supervision divers are given the opportunity of diving on wrecks, with the dolphins and in the numerous coral gardens, which border the coastline and are abundant with tropical marine life.

Malindi is also renowned for some of the best deep-sea fishing in the world, where anglers have the opportunity of catching Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna and a number of other exotic species of fish that frequent the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean. Fishing is booked through the resorts and registered fishing clubs, all of whom have licensed boats for day charters and even night charters for the more adventurous Swordfish anglers.

Excursions and flights can be arranged through registered travel agents located within the Malindi town, who will be pleased to arrange private guided tours, flights and accommodation at the wildlife lodges. Activities that include diving, sailing, deep-sea fishing, kite surfing, windsurfing and many other leisure sports can be arranged through the local beach resorts and hotels.

"World Class Birthday Celebration in Spectacular Mansion"

I must say I've taken many vacations but my stay in Elena House Malindi is by far the best I've ever experienced! Initially, I had picked different vacation villa to rent but when the group grew to 13 people, I had to look for other options. Elena House was reasonably priced, available on the dates that we requested and was willing to accommodate 13 people = perfect match! Upon arrival, we were blown away - it's such a beautiful compound - we never wanted to leave the pool! Heads up: the deep pool is saltwater and is not chilled...not a pleasant surprise in anybody's nose or mouth! The small plunge pool is chilled and chlorinated. The house helpers were absolutely amazing! That chef makes pure magic in that kitchen! Alex was so pleasant and so patient. I'm sure catering to 13 different personalities from morning to evening for 4 days was no small task! There was plenty of lounging space, quiet reading space, games space, dining space. The bed and bath rooms were well kept. We only experienced a short power outage on the last day but we were headed out to dinner anyway and it was restored by the time we returned. We accidentally pushed the security/alarm button (which we thought was a light switch) and the local authorities showed up almost instantly - quite reassuring! We ventured out on a short 7min walk to the Marine Park and spent the day sailing on the Indian Ocean which included a delicious lobster lunch - AMAZING! Other than that, we never wanted to leave the house. My friend is known for having spectacular birthday celebrations but this stay in Malindi definitely exceeded our expectations! She was so happy and we all had a blast in Elena House!

"Great place--great cook--stay here, its great!"

We were three families with kids between the ages of 6 months and 12 years. The main house can accomodate this many although one bedroom was a bit smaller than the others. The house was clean and well furnished. Although there were not airconditioners in every bedroom there were fans and the windows provided ventilation. There is a huge outdoor covered veranda where we ate meals and lounged; although there were flies. Ping pong table upstairs on a second veranda. Nice pool and gardens--great staff including the cook who might have been the highlight. We caught fish and he was very creative in how he cooked the fish in addition to the crab, lobster and shrimp that we purchased. We went to the beach (5 minute walk) every day and had a great time lounging and eating.
