An ocean of opportunities For Sports and Leisure.The dazzling Kenyan coastline is one of sun-drenched beaches with soft sand, warm turquoise waters and refreshing sea breezes.
The coast is also dotted with attractive creeks, sleepy rivers and shady inlets. This is an ideal place for big game fishing, diving,water sports – or just lying on the beach.
No region in Kenya is better served in terms of hotel accommodation.
From Lamu in the north to Chale Island in the far south, visitors will find just about every type of hotel with a rangeof prices to suit all budgets
Lying just offshore is a series of highly protected marine parks – Mombasa, Malindi,Diani/Chale Island, Kiunga, Kisite Mpunguti and Watamu – that together stretch almost the entire length of the Kenyan coastline, offering true paradise for divers.
Inland, the Coastline Region contains a number of small and mostly specialised parks and reserves:
•Arabuko Sokoke Forest National Park, located between Malindi and Watamu, is the last major remnant of tropical rain forest at the coast and features some rare species of birds.
•Tana River Primate National Reserve, covering 171 square kilometres, is home too a wide rangeof species including the rare and endangered mangebey and red colobus monkeys.
•Shimba Hills National Reserve, located conveniently close to the Diani resort on the south coast, is the only place in Kenya to view the sable antelope.
This is the only park in the circuit where accommodation is available.
