Mombasa

3.8
Mombasa rests on the exotic shores of the Indian Ocean and serves as a globally popular vacation destination thanks to its classy hotels and friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Mombasa's culture contains traces of the Portuguese, British, and Arab colonial influences, mostly reflected in the city's urban architecture. Visitors on vacation in Mombasa generally split their time between nature walks, conservation volunteering, discovering the hidden treasures of the old town, and enjoying various water sport activities on the area's beaches. Adventurers looking to get out of town for a while can explore the surrounding area, which offers outstanding bird-watching, mountain biking, and deep sea fishing opportunities. Mombasa is in Coast Province. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Mombasa and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Where to stay in Mombasa

Not unlike most coastal cities, Mombasa offers many hotels and guesthouses along its shoreline. Mid-range accommodations are clustered between the old town and the Kibokoni neighborhood. If you want some peace and quiet away from the city bustle, explore the area near Haller Park, where you'll find a variety of holiday resorts stretching along the coast.
