Watamu is a beautiful and peaceful village on the Kenya Coast, nestled between pristine beaches and lush tropical forest. Since it was first settled as a remote Swahili outpost at Gedi, this area has remained a haven of peace and tranquility and is still one of the coast's most undeveloped and natural areas.  Known for its unique, relaxed and laid back way of life, Watamu welcomes visitors seeking to chill out, explore and enjoy the wonders that it has to offer



Watamu Beach Watamu beach has a unique coastline. The beaches are lined with tiny deserted islands. There are also sandbars that offer walkways to the islands. The white sand beaches are sprinkled with hermit crabs, starfish and more. The long beach has a shallow reef where you can enjoy snorkelling, and see rays, octopus, deals and colourful fish. Mida Creek & Watamu Marine Park At the southern end of Watamu beach lies Mida Creek and Watamu Marine Park. It is a quiet place of weaverbirds, crayfish and black kites, where the village life remains little unchanged from this century to the net. The marine park is a 90-mile stretch of ocean where coral reefs form the backbone. Watamu Turtle Watch This organization protects approximately 50 green turtles which lay eggs on Watamu Beach. The centre educates the local community about the fragile nature of sea turtles. It is worth the visit. Visitors can see turtles being treated for injury or illness and also learn about these beautiful creatures.

Guided tours are available in the centre. You will get introduced to such deadly beauties as the black mamba, the black spitting cobra, puff adder, horned viper and more.
