The Kenya beaches are mostly located at the Kenyan Coast. These comprise some of the best white sandy beaches in the world. The hot coastal sun improves the holiday mood tremendously, giving you that lazy laid back mood you need to get into the vacationing spirit.

Great for relaxing after an activity filled safari tour.

One of the best experience that I personally enjoy is walking up and down the beach in the heat, with a gentle breeze.

 

NYALI BEACH

It is one of the white sandy beaches located on the northern part of Mombasa that offers a busy yet fun beach destination for tourists and locals.

You will also find a number of lavish and luxurious hotels such as the Sun Africa Nyali International beach hotel, which is an icon with a unique history and social significance which has returned with its timeless grandeur and contemporary spirit. Other hotels in this area are Voyager Beach Resort, Bahari Beach Hotel, Reef Hotel, among others.

Just nearby is the Bamburi Beach, which, offers great accommodation, such as the Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort and Spa, and further along, we have Serena Beach Resort and Spa, Paradise Beach Hotel, and Flamingo Beach Hotel.

The Nyali Beach surrounding hotels and restaurants have a unique structural art and provide the guest with an experience that is truly indulgent. Most of the common activities practiced at Nyali Beach are sunbathing, building sand castles and swimming.

We can book your accommodation in any of these hotels at affordable rates.

The beach resorts offer the visitors with a comfortable and relaxing accommodation environment during the holiday.

 

KIKAMBALA BEACH

Kikambala beach is located north of Mombasa, on the Indian Ocean. Filled with white sands and it is very peaceful. The reason as to why the beach is quiet is due to its far proximity from the road. Before approaching the beach will walk a bit lot distance to reach the place.

There are few bars at Kikambala Beach and the northern part has been completely left to nature. Kikambala Beach is ideal for long walks and at low tide you can even walk out to the coral reef to observe numerous sea creatures such crabs, star fish etc. Kikambala Beach is very quiet and busier in the afternoon, particularly with locals.

At high tide the water is great for swimming and splashing about, but it is mostly too warm to be refreshing. Some of nearby accommodation facilities one can use for resting include Salama Beach Resort, North Coast Beach Hotel and Sun and Sand Beach Resort.

Conclusion

If you want to enjoy an intimate quiet time on the beach with limited excursions, consider Diani and Watamu beaches, whereas if you plan to engage in a lot of activities, excursions and shopping, go to the Mombasa, Kikambala area.
