Kenya - Mombasa & the South Coast (Chapter)
This is the Mombasa & the South Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Kenya guidebook.
From the hypnotic port city of Mombasa south to the border with Tanzania, this stretch of Kenyan coast is anything but ordinary. Where else can you see snow white beaches framed by kayas (sacred forests), soft-sailed dhows and elephant watering holes, all in one day?
- trade for chilli and cardamom inside the skinny streets of Mombasa Old Town
- dive into the emerald reef at Wasini Island and soak up the Swahili spirit
- step barefoot onto the soft white sand at Diani Beach, and later kitesurf its waves
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Mombasa, Shimba Hills National Reserve, Tiwi Beach, Diani Beach, Gazi & Chale Island, Funzi Island, Shimoni & Wasini Island, Lunga Lunga, Nyali Beach, Bamburi Beach, Shanzu Beach, and Mtwapa.
