Watamu is a small peaceful village on the Kenya coast 105 kilometers north of Mombasa and 15 kilometers south of the town of Malindi.
The village lies between pristine beaches and lush tropical rain forests and two protected areas: Watamu Marine National Park and Arabuko Sokoke National Park. This region has been home to many communities and tribal groups living both in and around the coast, including the Giriama and Bajuni peoples.
The first major settlement in the area was a remote Swahili outpost for trading dhows at Gedi, the ruins of which can still be visited today and are a National Museum site.
Watamu has remained a haven of peace and tranquillity and is still proudly 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. Its main economic activities are tourism and fishing.
Watamu is blessed by long, white sand beaches and protected natural reserves home to unique species both above and below the surface of the Indian Ocean, from coral reefs to coastal creeks to forests alive with birds.
The shoreline in the area features white sand beaches and offshore coral formations arranged in different bays and beaches: Garoda Beach, Turtle Bay, Blue Lagoon Bay, Watamu Bay, Ocean breeze, and Kanani reef and Jacaranda beach. They are protected as part of the Watamu Marine National Park.
The Marine Park is considered one of the best snorkeling and diving areas on the coast of East Africa. It is also rated the third-best beach in Africa, for its crystal clear water and silver sand beaches.
Watamu hosts a number of the most beautiful hotels and resorts known to the world. For those seeking fine hotels and resorts, Watamu County offers some of the best five-star accommodation in Kenya.
Among the best hotels includes Acacia Cottage Watamu, Aragon House, Baobab Villa, Baraka House, Bay House, Blue Bay Cove Garden, Casuarina Beach Cottage, Dhow House, Eco Tower House, Garoda Resort among others.
