Watamu Holidays

Pristine beaches and stunning coral gardens

Watamu translates from Swahili to 'home of the sweet people' which is an apt name for this tranquil spot. Fringed with white sand and scalloped by three spectacular reef-protected lagoons, it is no wonder Watamu is consistently voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world.

Watamu's stunning coral gardens are home to fluorescent fish – if you're keen on snorkelling or diving then explore beneath the Indian Ocean and observe whale sharks, manta rays and sea turtles.

With its relaxed and laidback ambience, Watamu is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a family holiday or romantic getaway.

Please note that due to current FCO advice in place against Malindi, all our passengers are transitting to Watamu via Mombasa airport.
