Explore the white sands, turquoise waters and coral gardens of the Kenya coast
Our Kenya coast holidays make for an idyllic way to bring an East African safari to a satisfying close, or simply for an unforgettable stand-alone beach getaway. With its shimmering turquoise waters, powder-soft, white-sand beaches, sheltering palm trees and flavoursome cuisine, the Kenyan coast is about as close to a tropical paradise as it gets.
Mombasa, one of the oldest and characterful settlements in these parts, still bears many traces of Arabic and Portuguese influence, especially in its distinctive architecture and vibrant culture. Heading south, you’ll find pristine coral reefs flush with colourful marine life. You can explore the charming island of Lamu: there are relatively few visitors to this beautifully preserved World Heritage site with a rich Arab heritage and plenty of Swahili character.
And more Kenya coastal delights await you even further south. Just past Malindi Bay, Watamu is a Marine National Park and a utopia for divers and snorkelers keen to explore the unspoilt coral gardens that lie just 300 metres from the shore.
