The Best of Mombasa Beach Holidays in Kenya (6 Nights)
Kenya has some beautiful beaches. Imagine brilliant blue water lapping against fine white sands, where you can stretch and chill out. Kenya Beaches are lined with protective coral reefs, creating ideal waters for swimming and water sports. Kenya’s beaches and islands are somewhat of a mixed bunch. The coastline of Kenya is a tropical idyll of soft white sands and gentle sea breeze, where the passing of a day is marked by the slow arc of the sun.
The majority of tourists to Kenya visit Mombasa and the beaches around the city solely due to Kenya’s mass tourism approach. Both Malindi and Watamu are popular tourist resorts and have marine reserves and stunning beaches. Lamu Island is an enchanting place and worth a visit. Just north of Lamu is Kiwayu Island which has the reputation of being the beach and water sports retreat of the rich and famous.
If you travel slightly further north you reach Watamu which has the likes of Hemingways as good options for beach breaks away from the chaos of Mombasa.
The beaches of the south, including Diani Beach, are renowned for their palm-fringed white sands and great coral reefs. The diving – in particular at Kisite Marine Reserve – is considered the best in the south, with many wrecks to entice underwater enthusiasts.
For holiday makers on a beach safari in Mombasa, you can spice up your Kenya beach holiday with a short safari to the near by Tsavo East and West or Amboseli National Parks, The Shimba Hills National Reserve, Taita Hills Conservancy or take a Mombasa city tour as an add on to your Kenya beach holiday.
We offers truly wonderful Africa Beach Safaris with plenty of water sports, beach sports, scuba diving, wind surfing and deep sea fishing. Big game fishing is also available and you should find out when the fishing season is on in the various places.

Even weak and non-swimmers have had the confidence to enter the water with us and taken home unforgettable memories.
