Gently lapped by the rich warm waters of the Indian Ocean, the palm fringed white sandy beaches of Kenya’s picturesque coastline provide an idyllic tropical paradise.
The Kenya Coast, where the sea meets the wilderness, is an area of outstanding and raw natural beauty, home to a spectacular array of marine and land flora and fauna – exotic coral reefs, mangrove forests, turquoise lagoons, creeks, sacred Kaya forests, secluded islands and unspoilt bays combined with over 600 species of tropical fish, endangered sea turtles and dugongs, whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins and even humpback whales.
Having been an integral part of the maritime Arabian Spice Trade for over a thousand years, the Kenyan coast is also rich in history and forms a unique cultural melting pot between the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
