10 Days Beach holiday & Safari
Watamu is a small village located on the coast of Kenya, approximately 120 km north of Mombasa and 25 km south of Malindi. Watamu has an international reputation for its white-sand, reef protected beaches, which line the Watamu National Marine Park. It is virtually impossible to snorkel without seeing at least a few dozen species inside the main reef and divers outside the fringe reef stand an excellent chance of viewing the magnificent whale shark and Manta Rays that are seasonal visitors. From windsurfing to dolphin watching boat trips, gentle walks to explore the rock pools or simply lying on the beach getting tan, the Watamu beach offers something for everyone. Discover Kenya's stunning game parks, lakes and mountains, complemented by romantic, colonial-inspired safari camps and lodges.
