The Coast

About The Coast

A combination of bush and beach is always very popular with the chance to unwind by the sea after the excitement of a safari. The Kenyan coast however is not just about palm fringed beaches and the Indian Ocean however as there is also a rich Swahili culture along the coast that developed following the arrival of Arabs in the first millennium AD. Important sites of Swahili history and culture include Lamu town which has been designated a World Heritage Site, Mombasa’s Old Town and the 15th century Gedi ruins south of Malindi. Most visitors however come to the coast to relax on the fine sandy beaches and enjoy the range of activities on and in the clear waters of the Indian Ocean including snorkelling and diving on the reefs that shadow the coastline, kite surfing, boat trips and big game fishing.
