The Kenyan Coast region
Miles upon miles of unspoiled palm fringed beaches, islands and towns that still reflect Kenya's rich cultural heritage present yet another facet of this amazing country. Unique to East Africa's coast are the historic and symbolic reminders of the mix of African, Arabic and European cultures. They stretch the length of the coast from the Port of Mombasa and from Shimoni in the south to the serene and enchanting island of Lamu in the north. The proximity of some of the largest wildlife reserves make it easy to enjoy game viewing in Tsavo National Park and go back to the coast in a day. A sojourn to Kenya's coast is the perfect way to kick back and relax, luxuriate in the sun, scuba-dive, take a big-game fishing trip or a dhow cruise, discover Mombasa, or enjoy a bush trip into the traditions and culture of the coastal people. Lamu area : Going to the remote archipelago of Lamu is like traveling back in time. Lamu, Kenya's oldest living town has retained its appearance and character over the centuries. The town has narrow streets, no cars and the only means of transport on land are donkeys, or by sea, dhows or motor powered boats. Lamu area contains some of the world's last truly deserted tropical beaches and also features an abundant wildlife.Malindi : The main highlight of the town is the Marine National Park which boasts an amazing variety of corals and colorful fish that can be admired through glass bottomed boats or directly snorkeling among them.
Shimoni and Wasini island : With no cars, no roads, no running water or electricity, Wasini island has been left virtually untouched by the 20th century. Wasini village is a true fishing community with strong Arab and coastal influences. Visits to the beautiful Kisite Marine National Park, are done by dhow.
The Diani / Ukunda area
With swaying palms and soft, white sand caressed by glittering, turquoise water, Diani Beach has many of the ingredients of the perfect tropical holiday destination. It is deservedly popular, and as one of Kenya's premier Indian Ocean resorts, it has a large and still-growing assortment of hotels and restaurants, some of them extremely luxurious by local and often international standards. Thanks to warm seas and beautiful coral reefs it is also one of the best places to get close to the richly diverse marine life of the southern Kenyan coast, by snorkelling, scuba-diving or joining a boat safari.
The beach is the area's major attraction - long, soft, white and lovely, it comes close to the tropical ideal. The offshore reef offers rewarding snorkelling; it also keeps waves at bay, making paddling and swimming close to shore a pleasure, and providing perfect conditions for windsurfing lessons. The only drawbacks are the seaweed that gets washed up from time to time, the tides which, at their highest, cover much of the sand, and the hustlers (known locally as beach boys) who can be hard to shake off.
Beyond the beach:
The romantically inclined can cruise the shoreline in a dhow (traditional boat): a favourite destination is Kisite Marine National Park near the Tanzanian border, which offers outstanding snorkelling. Elsewhere in the underwater landscape, there are rewarding wrecks for scuba-divers to explore; you're likely to see turtles, mantas and barracuda among many other marine species. Whale sharks patrol the coastline between January and March. To spot one, or even snorkel beside one, you can join a half-day whale shark safari organised by the East African Whale Shark Trust, a locally based conservation organisation. To learn about local village culture, take a guided walk with the Kaya Kinondo Ecotourism Project.
Diani Beach has plenty of relaxed, family-friendly resort hotels that go out of their way to keep children amused with special menus, sports, games and other activities. The beach is safe for swimming but kids who want to snorkel will have to be strong swimmers to reach the reef - it is better to take a boat or canoe. The Colobus Trust (Diani Beach Road), set up to protect Diani's endangered black-and-white colobus, is great for monkey spotting.
