  a blue star fish in malindi
by call_me_rhia

When the tide is out, the coral reef is in! This is both in Malindi and Watamu - but take not that the reef is much nicer in Malindi. It's possible to walk out and about there and admire the fishes that have been trapped in holes and left behind by the tide. We saw corals of every shape and size, some tame water snakes, poisonous sea-urchins, colourful little fishes - and hundreds of star fishes. They were sooooo amazing: grey, red, brown, green, black and blue; these colourful ones are even more spectacular if you turn them around: their back colour is different. Some star fishes were standing still, others were of a different sort and moved like spiders. Very fascinating.

Equipment: water shoes, or you'll cut your feet on corals
