There were not plenty of tourists when we went there. It was rather quiet during the day, in spite of insisting beach boys. we had to explain them clearly to let us alone. The long beach was really clean and the algae were not an issue. We were surprised by the number of old white men or women "flirting" with... More

We have been here before, lot of fun local and international tourist and we have been shock on seeing now the beach empty, few curio vendors and tour guide left with no much hope, lets hope things will improve.

- We enjoyed swimming in the ocean - Careful when dealing with beach boys and ensure you negotiate the fees before engaging them

Took a snorkeling tour from here and although not as extensive as some sites the numbers of fish and experience quality was great, we ate at Bamburi beach club restaurant and this also was to a high standard

The beach doesn't have many stones or coral reefs that hurt the feet. At least it has more sand. The games and sports at the beach were excellent. Nowdays the beach boys are controlled. At least they do not disturb the visitors much. I noticed most sailors now have IDs. That's an excellent job. Congrats.

Walking on the beach was total hassle, everyone on the beach wanted money from us, I picked out one beach boy and told everyone else that jay was looking after me, I also used jay to give guides on prices that way I got some good value items. there are a lot of great items for sale and services for...

Situated at the North Of Mombasa, its arguably the largest, popular and populous beach in Mombasa. A wide range of coastal delicacies , African attire and African art are sold there. The Counties effort in maintaining security and its cleanliness is quite impressive.

along the beaches pirates beach and bamburi beach are next to each other, and at the beach you will find dozens of jobless crooks who will greet you in a very friendly way and then insist on you trying their boat rides or photo shooting, just avoid them because they will charge you according to your colour and race :)
