Overview & Attractions
Mombasa is the largest city on the Kenyan coast and combines city excitement with beach relaxation. The coastal area features nearly 500 kilometres of tranquil white beaches, golden sand dunes, warm aqua water and idyllic secluded islands. Mombasa is a historic city with an old town and Fort Jesus, now a national monument and museum. Malindi is located just a few hours north of Mombasa, and offers complete relaxation combined with world-class scuba diving and outstanding international and local cuisine. Watamu, like Malindi, is a small beach village with a few small shops. The beaches are one of the main attractions and the coral reefs offer some of the best diving in Kenya. During May to September the beaches are subject to seaweed and tidal variance.
Serena Beach Resort And Spa
Mombasa North Coast - Designed to resemble a 13th century Swahili town, complete with winding lanes, carved balconies, fountains and market squares, this property provides an oasis of tranquillity.
In addition there is a good mix of water sports, world-class cuisine and evening entertainment.
The hotel, situated in lush gardens, is set back from the powder white sands and shimmering waters of the Mombasa National Marine Park. The extensive grounds with their coconut palms offer an exotic mix of tropical trees and bright blossoms and centre on a swimming pool with a thatched 'swim-up' bar and crystal waters that cascade into the tiled coolness of the market square below.
Jacaranda Indian Ocean Beach Resort
Mombasa South Coast - Set on a superb beach, this hotel's secluded setting makes for a laid back, peaceful atmosphere.
The Kenyan coast was once ruled by the rich Sultans of Zanzibar, which is reflected in the Arabic architecture.
The resort is set among 22 acres of swaying coconut palm groves and magnificent old baobabs, overlooking the powder white sands of Diani Beach and the Tiwi estuary.
