Malindi Things to Do: 14 reviews and 33 photos
This is the point where the Portuguese seaman Vasco da Gama laid his anchor in Kenya - after he had been turned away from Mombasa. People here welcomed him with open arms. There is now a simple white-washed pillar as a monument to mark the spot where he landed. It's along the seafront - after Malindi's beach - and you can reach it on foot easily - by following a narrown lane by the sea - or scrambling onto and along the ocean-front rocks. There are nice views from the monument.
Directions: about 15 minutes walk from the beach - direction malindi town
