finest beaches on the Kenyan Coast

Hemingways Watamu has been welcoming travellers to this stretch of the Kenyan Coast for nearly 30 years. With turquoise waters and pristine sands at its feet, this iconic boutique hotel makes a charming spot for some post-safari relaxation. To aid your downtime, you’ll find a tennis court, two beautiful swimming pools and an exquisite spa. The latter is set in its own pavilion, where you can indulge in a range of restorative treatments.

Those who like to keep active are equally well catered for. You can try your hand at kitesurfing, go birding along Mida Creek or take the opportunity to get your PADI certificate. The snorkelling and scuba diving here is exceptional, with pristine corals and a multi-colored marine life to explore. The area is a renowned big game fishing destination, hosting many televised tournaments throughout the year, and has recently added seasonal whale watching tours to its repertoire of excursions.
