Kenyan Coast

Discover the iconic Kenyan Coast

Protected by an offshore barrier coral reef, Kenya’s coastline is famous for its spectacular beaches, tropical waters and array of water sports such as snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, and kite surfing. With its own unique character, the Kenyan coast offers the perfect end to an exhilarating safari.

The breathtaking destination of Diani boasts the region’s most prized beaches, and south of Diani is where you will find Wasini Island and the Wasini Marine National Park, one of the best snorkelling places in Africa. Diani lies about 19 km south of Fort Jesus, Mombasa.

The fort, built by the Portuguese in 1593 – 1596 to the designs of Giovanni Battista Cairati to protect the port of Mombasa, is one of the most outstanding and well-preserved examples of 16th Portuguese military fortification and a landmark in the history of this type of construction.
