KILIFI

Kilifi is the lesser-known beach destination on the Kenyan coastline that likes to keep things low-key. Located about 55 kilometres north of Mombasa, and before the busier towns of Watamu and Malindi, Kilifi offers a laid-back vibe with a side of natural beauty. Think stunning white sandy beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and enough lush greenery to make you feel like you've stumbled upon a tropical paradise. The weather? Well, let's just say it's so warm and inviting, you'll forget what "stress" even means.

But wait, there's more! Kilifi isn't just about picture-perfect beaches and sun-soaked relaxation. Oh no, it has a little secret tucked away: the Kilifi Creek. This tranquil waterway meanders through mangrove forests like it's doing an interpretive dance, all leading to jaw-dropping views of the mighty Indian Ocean. Nature lovers, rejoice! The creek is your playground, offering small boat safaris, kayaking adventures, and even fishing for those who like to test their luck. Plus, the surrounding mangroves create a zen-like atmosphere, where you can spot all sorts of funky bird species and witness the tides doing their mesmerizing dance routine.
