  a coral "mushroom" on watamu beach
by call_me_rhia

Watamu beach is a paradise about 20 kilometres and minutes from Malindi - by taxi of course. The beach is wide and white, the sea has all the hues and shades of blue and green, and at low tide you can walk to a little atoll/island nearby: the island of love. You can also see some large coral "mushrooms" which are very suggestive, and little coral pool filled with star fishes, shells and small colourful fishes. The good thing about Watamu is that you can lay in the water at low-tide, too. Between the beach and the island of love there's a little channel deep enough for you to sit in the water and relax. Watamu is really a place that makes you dream on, and on. Sidenote: you can use for free sun chairs at the sun palm hotel if you order a drink.

Equipment: swimsuit - water shoes are not too necessary (but pay attention not to step onto some coral)

Address: watamu
Directions: watamu beach - ask for the sun palm resort
Theme: Beach Activities
