Kenyan coast holidays

Kenya’s coast comprises 536 kilometres of sandy beaches, port cities, fishing villages and tropical greenery – all looking out on the clement Indian Ocean. Mombasa, Kenya’s vibrant capital and oldest city, resides on this shoreline.

While the country is renowned first and foremost as a safari destination, this long stretch of coast draws many visitors annually, who stay at the luxury resorts and retreats that dot the shores. Desirable spots for a beach escape include Diani, Lamu Island, and Mombasa itself. Off shore, coral reefs teem with marine life presenting snorkelling and diving opportunities. A few days spent on the Kenyan coast is an idyllic way to bring an East African safari to a close.
