Watamu

Hailed for its picturesque scenery and pristine beaches, the village of Watamu on Kenya's Indian Ocean coastline attracts both adventure seekers and those looking for a relaxing seaside holiday. Surrounded by a verdant forest, the village provides access to bays and beaches of the Watamu Marine National Park, a biosphere reserve that houses coral reefs, tropical fish, and rare sea turtles that come to nest on the sandy shore. Things to do in Watamu range from snorkeling and diving among the colorful reefs, to exploring forest trails and trying out different water sports. Whether you only want to go to Watamu, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Kenya planner.
