Kite-surfing, snorkelling and relaxing in peaceful Watamu...
Nestled between pristine beaches and luscious forest, Watamu is a peaceful costal town with an excellent array of water activities available.
Offering some of the best snorkelling and diving in East Africa due to the Watamu National Marine Park – a maze of rich corals skirting the shoreline – this is the place to come if life under water is where you're happiest. At certain times of the year, majestic whale sharks pass through this stretch of ocean, and giant turtles and exotic fish are seen all year around. There’s also a couple of renowned kite-surfing schools like Tribe Watersports, which offer three day courses to get you skimming the waves in no time.
Watamu is also known for its fantastic range of accommodation, from the luxurious Hemmingways Hotel to the eccentric and charming Watamu Treehouse.
