  • I have been here countless times. You pay about 1 dollar at the entrance. A romantic & private get away. However, the restaurant there doesn't seem functional. Great for sightseeing and picnics. Definitely worth checking out.
  • The beach is really awesome but beware of scorpions and crabs. The people are so welcoming and share a lot if engaged
  • A very nice view. Quite peaceful.
  • Awsome, historic and breathtaking. What a mazes me most is ancient architectural designs and this people built with out cement.
  • Located in Mtwapa, this historical site is worth visiting. It offers insight into the early history and settlements of the Kenyan Coast. The ruins gets one to simply admire the architectural prowess that our ancestors possessed. It's a calm, clean and peaceful place ideal for individual as well as group visits. There's a sandy beach where one can swim or simply bask in the sun.
