Watamu Beach

Watamu activities tribe

The sleepy village of Watamu, fronted by powder-white beaches & crystal clear coral waters is situated on the north coast of Kenya, approximately 100km North of Mombasa. It is a tranquil haven primarily home to private houses and private guesthouses scattered through the forest along the deserted shore. Relax in the peace and calm of Watamu or the activities and opportunities are endless. The waters are home to a Marine National Park, so an ideal day trip for divers and snorkellers alike, take a sundowner on a dhow (Arabic trading boat), visit the turtle breeding programme, visit the Arabuko Sokoke Forest reserve to see rare endemic birds and mammals; the lost town of Gedi, a deserted Swahili town hidden deep in the forests, whose crumbling walls tell of a mysterious past. Water sports include kite-surfing, wind-surfing, kayaking, SUP and snorkelling. Beyond the marine park the deep sea fishing is world renowned, with the majority of boats supporting the 'tag and release' programme.
