In addition to offering the best wildlife safari destinations, Kenya is known for its fantastic beaches along the east coast. Water sports activities such as kitesurfing, diving and game fishing have attracted tourists from around the world.

Facing the Indian Ocean, Kenya's eastern coastline stretches hundreds of kilometers and is dotted with towns that offer white sand beaches, clear crystal water, colorful coral reefs and a diverse culture. Among these, the more notable places include Lamu, an ancient town dating back centuries that features distinctive Arabic culture, Kenya's second-largest city of Mombasa, and the smaller but more serene towns of Diani, Watamu and Malindi.

Visitors can easily spend a relaxing long holiday in any of these destinations, whether submerging in warm tropical sunlight getting a tan, strolling with bare feet on the soft beaches enjoying beautiful sunsets or just enjoying the clear breeze lying in the shade of coconut trees, more restless tourists who opt for extreme activities have found their paradise too.
