Mombasa, Kenya a stunning beach destination

Off the radar for a while, the stunning beach destination of Mombasa, Kenya is back. The Kenya Coast has some really fantastic beaches and a good range of hotels. Historic Mombasa city is on an island, with plenty of interest while the beaches extend to the North and South of the city.

Beaches of Mombasa

The North Coast is the more developed of the two, with more facilities outside of the hotels, and more visitors - if you’re looking for activities, it’s ideal.

The South Coast is less developed, and is perfect for a more relaxing holiday with Diani Beach regularly being voted the best beach in Africa - beaches here are wider and whiter, and hotels here tend to be a little more spacious.

North of Mombasa, the beaches of Watamu and Malindi are an excellent place to unwind, with coral reefs and more of a village feel.

Safari in Kenya

It’s easy to do a short safari from Mombasa and popular one is the 2 night ‘Tsavo Explorer’ excursion which includes one night in TsavoEast National Park, and one night in neighboring Tsavo West National Park, which on a clear day offers an uninterrupted view of Mount Kilimanjaro – these two parks form one of the world’s largest nature reserves, renowned for herds of elephants and lions. This is an excellent option for those who are short of time and is the perfect opportunity for a first taste of safari, with some wonderful game viewing. 

Mombasa is a great option for a honeymoon or simply just a relaxed holiday in a stunning location.

Mark has recently got back from stunning Mombasa, give him a call and he can try to tell you how stunning it is, but you can’t appreciate it until you see it for yourself.
