Discover the beauty of Kenya’s Magical Coastline…

Linked to the mainland by the famous Nyali Bridge, Mombasa’s north coast is a sanctuary for seaside and water lovers alike. The white sand beaches extend as far as the eye can see and just below the surface of the bright blue waters is the breath-taking coral reef that is full of marine life, making Mombasa’s north coast an internationally-recognized location for reef and wall diving. The four beaches on the north coast – Nyali, Bamburi, Shanzu and Kikambala– draw thousands of visitors each year, as do the large sea-front hotels and resorts that overlook the Indian Ocean. The suburb of Nyali is home to the world-famous Tamarind Restaurant and Dhow, as well as the cement silos of English Point, show grounds of the Agricultural Society of Kenya and Mamba Village, and the historic Nyali Golf Club offers squash, tennis and an 18-hole golf course that are accessible to you when you stay at one of the north coast hotels or resorts. When visiting the north coast beaches on low tide, the retreating waters allow you to walk out to the fringing reef, an almost surreal aquatic experience. The northern seashores also allow you to swim during the high and low tides. The accommodation costs in the north are generally less than the south coast, making it a very family-friendly coastal holiday destination.
