    Additional Location Information
    Watamu is one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Located approximately 100km North of Mombasa, the waters are a protected Marine Park allowing spectacular opportunities for snorkelling and scuba-diving, with lovely corals and blizzards of colourful fish. The pristine white sands along Turtle Bay Beach are a haven for nesting Turtles, and every now and again you have the privilege to see the little rubbery turtle hatchlings make their first mad bid for the ocean. Watamu is a special place for all water sports, from Deep-Sea Fishing to Kite-Surfing and Kayaking. Close by is the protected Mida Creek and it's fabulous array of birdlife and mangrove forests - a trip to Watamu is not complete without a dhow trip to watch the spectacular sun-sets over Mida.

We stayed at little Gem with our two children (who loved it!) for ten nights. I do recommend this little house for value, as it is right on the beach and at a good price. We did enjoy our stay here except the house does need simple things but essential items like decent pillows, better kitchen utensils, more chairs and... more

This is a beautiful place at the beach which is more rugged than presented. Hot water requires someone to build a fire in outside furnace; there are no screens on windows to keep out mosquitos if you want the lights on at night; monkeys require food to be put in lockdown boxes. Sitting porch lovely, as well as pool. Competent... more
