Kenya Beach Holiday

Discover Kenya’s

Coastal Paradise

Embark on a Kenya Beach Holiday to explore the pristine shores and azure waters that stretch along the country’s magnificent coastline. From the vibrant city beaches of Mombasa to the tranquil retreats of Diani and the historic Lamu Archipelago, the beaches in Kenya offer a beach experience for every traveller.

Beyond the savannahs and wildlife safaris, the beaches in Kenya are a hidden treasure, boasting powdery sands, warm tropical waters, and spectacular coral reefs. Dive into an underwater world of rich marine life, perfect for snorkelling and diving adventures, or simply soak up the sun in serene beachfront settings.

Whether you’re seeking a family-friendly vacation, a romantic getaway, or a solo retreat, the beaches in Kenya promise unforgettable moments and a perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. When most people think of Kenya, they imagine sprawling savannah plains, teeming wildlife, and excellent safaris. While a safari in Kenya is one of Africa’s top experiences, a Kenya beach holiday is also highly sought after.

Think pristine, powdery beaches, warm tropical waters, and spectacular coral reefs, and you’ll have a good idea of what a Kenya beach holiday is about. Marine life along the coast is also spectacular, making destinations here very popular for snorkelling, swimming, and diving. We recommend adding a beach excursion to your safari, as after scouring the dusty savannah for wildlife, a few days spent lazing in the sun on a tropical beach makes for a lovely combination.

The Lamu Archipelago, located off the northern part of the Kenyan coast, consists of a number of small islands, the most popular of which is the unspoilt Lamu Island. Besides offering some of the most beautiful of Kenya’s beaches, Lamu Island also provides a simple and laid-back experience. The island features numerous historical sites that reflect its unique culture and history, colourful markets, and a range of water activities ranging from dhow cruises to snorkelling and swimming with dolphins.

If you’re after a relaxed atmosphere and palm-fringed beaches, the South Coast of Kenya is highly recommended. Family beach holidays here are crammed full of exciting activities for every member of the family, from golf to engaging activities for children at the kiddies clubs. The South Coast is also an excellent place for honeymooners looking to experience an idyllic Kenya beach holiday in absolute privacy and seclusion.

Mombasa, one of Kenya’s most popular beach destinations, is filled with sun-worshipping crowds and offers a fun, vibrant atmosphere, along with some of the larger resorts along Kenya’s coast. In addition to the excellent beaches, Mombasa boasts bustling markets, historic buildings, and a cultural fusion of East and West. North of Mombasa, Malindi offers some of the best beaches and beach resorts in Kenya. Located within the Malindi Marine National Park, scuba diving and snorkelling are superb, as is the deep-sea fishing.
