Details of Beach Holiday

History and culture buffs will be enchanted by the tumbled ruins of ancient Geda and the more well preserved remains of sites such as Fort Jesus within Mombasa's centuries old Old Town district. Swahili settlements such as Lamu also offer a great opportunity for visitors to better familiarise themselves with Kenya's native population.

Looking for a beach break? The Kenya Coast boasts marine reserves perfect for snorkelling or scuba diving, palm-shaded resorts offering up pampering aplenty, and white sand beaches perfect for swimming and sunbathing. So well regarded are Kenya's beaches that Watamu Beach has even been rated among the top ten beaches in the world!

The entire region offers up a startling contrast of cultures where traditional Swahili culture blends with white-walled mosques and five star resorts. It's an utterly enchanting fusion that needs to be experienced to be believed.

Kenya is not just known for its national parks and the animals that call them home. The Indian Ocean coastline of the country is famous for its white sand beaches and crystal clear waters.
Highlighted by historic Mombasa and the Swahili culture that influences the region so heavily, the Indian Ocean Coast (sometimes known as the Kenya Coast) is a glorious ribbon of silver and sapphire just begging to be explored at a leisurely pace.
