Observe the vibrant marine life or simply unwind amidst the palms and silver sands of Watamu Beach, a set of beaches near a fishing village. With offshore coral formations lying within a marine national park, the beach has some of Kenya's best snorkeling and diving spots, revealing a wide array of multicolored species. Alternatively, you can take a glass-bottomed boat trip to witness the reef. Keep your eye out for sea turtles, and during low tide, explore countless pools with an abundance of creatures. Put Watamu Beach into our Malindi trip itinerary maker app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Malindi.
