Mombasa Sea Coast: Kenya Scuba Diving and Beach Holidays

Mombasa and the southern coastline with turquoise blue waters and white sand beaches are a perfect holiday get-away that many suggest is a tropical paradise. The Indian Ocean's colorful coral reefs and drop-offs are a scuba divers haven with sea turtles, dolphins and a plethora of reef fish.

Verdant green coastal rainforest border the beaches are prolific with primates and birdlife. Shimoni, Lamu, Malindi and Watamu are some other coastal areas offering everything from a relaxing beach holiday to deep-sea fishing.

Malindi is one of the oldest towns in eastern Africa, as a trade port dating back to the 9th century. Tourism in Kenya started in Malindi as Europeans looked for safari and beach holidays. The town of Malindi hasn't changed much in the past hundred or so years, with small shops, beautiful beaches and friendly multi-national local residents.

Lamu Island is a historical town that's been a trading center for the Persian Gulf region and India since the 11th century. The island is remote and not very frequently traveled, so transit can be lengthy and difficult.

Close proximity to Tsavo East & West and Shimba Hills Mature Reserve can easily be combined for a beach & safari holiday combination.
