Watamu Vacations

Travelers seeking a destination close to lovely mountains, valleys and savannahs far removed from the yapping tourist hordes, are sure to enjoy Watamu and surrounding towns in this part of Kenya.

Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is situated roughly 260 miles (418 kilometers) to the northwest of Watamu.

Be sure to visit the Watamu Beach when you are in Watamu.

If you'd like to really experience the Kenya lifestyle it's a good idea to discover the wider region around Watamu. Kilifi, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast, and Kaloleni, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the northeast of Watamu are also well worth checking out.

Discover the region's rich cultural fabric within Kenya's wonderful craft workshops.

Visitors who like to go beyond the usual sights will love Watamu's wildlife spotting tours and wildlife safaris.

Get a taste of the range of flavors in Kenya by tasting local food and beverages. Potato and maize are some of the prized ingredients. Follow the lead of the locals and enjoy ugali (cornmeal) or irio (mashed peas and potato mix). Chilled banana cream is a good way to end your dining experience. And, whatever time it is, Kenya is a great spot to ask for Picana (mango juice).

When it's time to say goodbye to Watamu, head to the nearest major airport located in Mombasa, 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the southwest.
