"The Swahili Coast at Watamu, Kenya" Watamu by Waxbag

Watamu Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 111 photos

Although Watamu has plenty of resorts, it has managed to retain its fishing village atmosphere. The actual beaches aren't the best as there are too many 'beach boys' to annoy you senselessly. However there is a rocky promontory that is beautiful, albeit sand-less. From here nobody bothers you and you can enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets while watching the wave crash into the cliffs with sailing dhows only meters away from the coast.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Good place to rest for a couple of days
  • Cons:The beach boys are a real hasstle here.
