Nothing special in bamburi beach. There is nothing except the hotel. The sea is not clean and the beach is not comfortable because of the local guys, every moment they tried to sell something. In general, there is nothing in bamburi or nyali beach, if u want to go mombasa u should choose really really good hotel.
