Experience Watamu Beach, Kenya

Watamu, a sleepy village south of Malindi, is bordered by large white beaches. Several developed resorts and numerous private guesthouses are scattered across the forest along the desolate shore in this scenic haven. The town’s main attraction is the Watamu Marine National Park. It’s a perfect spot for both divers and snorkelers.

From intertidal fringing reefs and coral gardens to cliffs, sandy beaches, and the Milda Creek mangrove forest, the Marine Park has it all. Cod, turtles, dugongs, and crabs in abundance. Mangrove species abound in the Mida Creek forest, providing a haven for fish, turtles, and birds.
