This is a lovely beach (not as pretty as Shanzu) but it has more facilities like bars and restaurants. What ruins the experience is the hawkers that simply did not understand "no".

A once great paradise and beach location, is now becoming a big brothel... one cannot walk a few metres without being harassed by massage ladies, pimps, hawkers and beach boys.

I loved this beach simply because it was not crowded.I could take a run in the morning,sunbathe in the afternoon and also do a lot of water activities easily. But travellers to be cautious of beach persons that may want to take advantage of guests especially if you are not local.

Bamburi Beach hotel is a nice place to be. Their rates are very good and they equal the service they provide. The good is very nice and of different varieties. The pools are well maintained.

BAMBURI BEACH RESORT is, has been and will always be my family's favorite spot over holidays and mid year quick excurtions into the Coastal area. The resort sports the best facilities in terms of service and amenities closest to the Mombasa town as well as the beach. The rooms are neat and clean, very airy and the ambiance is awesome....
