I live in Kenya for many years. located in the bay of Watamu, undoubtedly the most beautiful of all the kenya, the crystal bay is the excellence of the merger of the Italian culture with that of Kenya. the extraordinary beauty of the bay, the eco-friendly structure, the very spacious and luxuriant suites make your stay certainly indimentivabile.
