About this location

The Coast Province region

Kilifi is the perfect place for relaxation at the Kenyan Indian Ocean Coast. I has white beaches, tropical climate and lots of interesting activities. The Kilifi Creek is perfect for watersports and a professional international company offers sailing in all sorts of dinghies and catamarans, windsurfing, diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing, waterskiing and wakeboarding. Bicycles can be rented, there is an international Golf Court nearby, Vipingo ridge, and for nature lovers there is Arabuko Sokoke forest, as well as Tsavo national park.

Kilifi always has a pleasant climate, with temperatures normally ranging from 25 to 30 degrees Celsius, 86 degrees Fahrenheit, but with always a cool Indian Ocean breeze.

Kilifi can be reached either by road from Nairobi, or by flight to either Mombasa or Malindi airports. Airport pick up can be organised.

There are a few unique seafood restaurants nearby, like the Kilifi Boatyard or Nautius restaurant.

"A Beautiful House in Kilifi"

Mgunga House is a perfect place for a stay in Kilifi. It is beautifully finished and furnished, with airy and spacious rooms, two roof terraces and a huge kitchen. The pool is a great place to cool of… More

This house is not on the beach, but that's a bonus because the on-shore breeze is slightly reduced. The coast is just a short walk down to great rock pools, or a short drive to Beaufort Beach whi… More

"Beautiful villa at the coast, perfect spacious accommodation, with large swimming pool and garden"

Large beautiful designed villa at the coast, with large swimming pool and garden. We stayed there one week (28 dec. 2013 - 4 January 2014) and had a great time. Very calm environment, great terraces at each level of the house with view on the sea from the roof terrace. Kitchen is fully equipped and large. Bedrooms are nicely ventilated like the whole house. The garden has many birds we spotted bee-eaters, love birds and many more. Great place to relax. Furthermore there is a great watersports activity centre in Kilifi for sailing, windsurfing, diving and waterski
Kilifi is a still authentic small town at the Kenya coast.
