Kenyan Coast

Forget what you know about the Kenya coast. It is beautiful, welcoming and the perfect place to end your safari.

Pick the right place and you will have the beaches to yourselves. Dazzling coral reefs are protected by offshore marine parks where you can have fun in, on or under the water with activities ranging from diving and snorkelling, big game fishing, paddle-boarding and world-class kite surfing.

A little more about the Kenyan Coast

Hints of a fascinating history, as the traditional passage of the Arabian spice trade, are seen scattered along the lengths of the coast, with Portuguese and Arab forts and the deserted ruins of Swahili outposts reminders that this is home of Swahili culture with a rich heritage.

It is of course, the beaches that draw you in, where you can spend time worshipping the sun on the tropical shores, where your every need is catered for at discreet, yet luxurious retreats, or you can enjoy a private, fully staffed villa, with miles of exclusive beach to yourselves. It’s all about knowing where to look.
