Sadly tourism along the Kenyan coast has seen better days - a product of geo-political security/stability and potentially, value for money issues. Whereas the beach environment remains relaxing and exquisitely beautiful, the air of socio-economic and personal desperation that pervades all is extremely disheartening. There is a real sense that the boom of decades is over - but for the... More

You won't find a beach in kenya just as good! The sun will bake you to a perfectly cooked temperature and the sea will cool you down to just where you need to be.

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 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
