Further details indoors

The Kenya coast has a North and South Monsoon.

The winds blow from the North from around end of November through to April/May and then change to the South.

This obviously brings changes on the beach,

In the North Monsoon the sea weed is blown down towards the house and there for the beach is not a complete stretch of white sand.

There are always areas that are clear and where you can swim.

It is absolutely not a problem but I would like you to know the photographs are taken in the South Monsoon.

The Kenyan Coast region

Malindi is the second largest coastal town after Mombasa. There are plenty of opportunities for sightseeing in and around Malindi. The town was an important Swahili settlement founded in the 14th century. Many Swahili buildings that clearly reflect the influences of Middle-Eastern architecture have survived in the old town area of Malindi. The town also has several remainders from the time the Portuguese ruled Malindi.

Watamu to the South, has Gedi ruins, before driving down to the beach itself, which is truly spectacular in places.


Both Malindi and Watamu have Marine National Parks, and the goggling is very good.

Scuba diving is available, as is Kite surfing, Wind Surfing, and other water sports.
