Kenya's Turquoise Waters, White Sand Beaches and Isolated Islands


Kenya’s coastline and islands are what dreams are made of! The warm, turquoise blue waters of the Indian Ocean lap the shores of long stretches of white sand beaches of Kenya. Small islands like Funzi just beyond the South Coast offer peaceful seclusion away from the hectic pace of life in the modern world. Lamu Island is an enchanting blend of 13th-century architecture where time has stood still. Mombasa gives you the experience of an intriguing island and the quaint charm of a coastal destination on the north and south beaches.

Venturing away from the coastal mainland into the city of Mombasa is other-worldly. The aroma of exotic spices fills the air as you pass Swahili houses in labyrinth streets, markets, mosques, churches, temples and other buildings with delicate Arabian architectural details. The islands of Lamu enhances your time in East Africa even more as it is the site of one of Kenya’s most well-preserved Swahili settlements. These locations not only offer spectacular historic settings, but a discerning vacation for every guest.

From the distinct beachcomber to the underwater explorer and deep sea angler, Kenya’s Indian Ocean coastal beaches and islands have something for everyone! Talk to your AfricanMecca beach representative today, and soon you will have the white sand of Kenya’ coast caressing through your toes.
