Experience Watamu Beach, Kenya

Set south of Malindi is the sleepy village of Watamu, fronted by wide white beaches. This tranquil haven is home to several established resorts, and many private guesthouses scattered through the forest along the deserted shore.  Watamu Marine National park is the main highlight of the town. It is an ideal spot for divers and snorkelers alike.

The Marine Park offers fascinating diversity from inter-tidal fringing reefs and coral gardens, cliffs, sandy beaches to Milda Creek mangrove forest. Rich diversity of fish, turtles, dugongs and crabs. Mida Creek forest is rich in mangrove species, which provide refuge to fish, turtles and birds.
