Stretching for more than 480 kilometres from its northern to southern borders, Kenya’s Indian Ocean coastline has countless idyllic beaches, making our holidays to Kenya’s beaches the ideal conclusion to a safari. After spotting the Big Five on the wild savannah, head to the coast to relax in the warm waters or lie on talcum-powder soft beaches sheltered by swaying coconut palms. A large proportion of the coastline is protected by coral reefs, meaning excellent opportunities for scuba diving and watersports.
The climate and quietness of the coast make it a popular choice for those seeking an unspoiled beach destination after a safari. Average temperatures of 28 degrees, light sea breezes and uncrowded waters mean that Kenya Beach holidays are ideally suited to watersports. Thanks to its idyllic setting and excellent weather, the coast is one of the Indian Ocean’s premier kitesurfing destinations, and scuba diving and snorkeling can uncover a variety of marine life.
Explore the culture of the coast with tours of the many towns that were influenced by the spice routes, leaving behind a melting pot of different cultures. All along the Swahili coast, Arab and Indian traders mixed with the indigenous Kenyans, creating the vibrant Swahili culture that has existed here since the ninth century.
