Pristine Beaches & Wild Landscapes in Watamu

Enjoy the serenity of a secluded beach hideaway and tour a UNESCO-protected national park on this family-friendly holiday.

About Your Trip

Take a break from your busy life and head to a sunny, laid-back oceanfront resort in Watamu, Kenya. During your stay, the entire family will revel in plenty of land and water activities for all ages and energy levels. During the day, you can play tennis, lounge by one of the pools with a refreshing beverage or take to the water — the gorgeous white-sand beach is just steps away. At night, savor cool breezes while you relish a glowing sunset across the Indian Ocean horizon.

On Day 3, you’ll embark on a tour at Watamu Marine National Park & Reserve, a UNESCO-protected area. It’s widely recognized for its rich population of plants, birds and marine life, including green turtles and coral gardens.

In your ample leisure time, you can venture off the resort and explore some interesting sites. How about the largest collection of snakes in East Africa? Bio-Ken Snake Farm is home to 127 snake species. Or, you could travel back in time with a visit to the Gede ruins — home to the remains of a typical 12th-century Swahili town complete with tombs, mosques and even a palace. If you ever wanted to windsurf or fish, head to Watamu Beach where you’ll find a variety of watersport activities.

What we love:
• Watamu town might be a few miles south of your resort, but it’s defiantly worth a visit for its lively markets and restaurants that feature a cuisine of fresh, local items.
• The gently sloping Watamu Beach is regularly ranked among Africa’s top beaches and the best diving spot in East Africa for its clear water and amazing coral reefs.
• Watamu Marine National Park & Reserve is designated as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve for its outstanding eco-system. Endangered animals include Basra reed warbler and white-backed vulture, and several conservation programs are in place, such as one for sea turtles.
