Where you’ll be

Watamu, Kilifi County, Kenya

Watamu, in local Swahili language, means "sweet people". It is a fishermen village on the coast of the Indian Ocean at about 150 km north of Mombasa and 25 km south of Malindi. It has grown into a lovely beach resort over the years. The village has all you need: two small supermarkets, a number of curio and souvenir dealers, a butchery, fishmongers, banks and forex, post office, two doctors' clinics, a western hairdresser, many restaurants, a casino, bars, night clubs and several roadside eateries. Watamu Marine National Park was the first to be established in Kenya back in 1968. The adjacent Arabuko Sokoke Forest is the largest indigenous coastal forest remaining in East Africa. It also hosts the ancient Gede ruins. The whole area is declared a UN Biosphere Reserve.
