The Malindi Marine National Park
From swimming with zebra fish to windsurfing, this beautiful slice of Kenya’s Indian Ocean coastline provides the perfect getaway. The park is endowed with magnificent resources such as fringing reefs, coral gardens in the lagoons, sea grass beds, mangroves, mudflats, marine mammals, turtles and various species of shorebirds. Visitors can also enjoy glass bottom boat rides, snorkelling, camping and beach walks in this veritable paradise.
The Safari Blu Watamu
The Safari Blu is an all-day-long excursion in a glass-bottomed boat and consists of a boat trip to admire the depths of the coral reef and spot dolphins in the open sea. Spend the day snorkelling and swimming in water at the marine park. Stop on a beautiful Island inside the reefs for a lunch of grilled seafood and fresh tropical fruits.
The Robinson Island.
Robinson Island is situated in the North of Malindi and about a forty-five-minute drive past Ngomeni Salinas. The road leading there is full of wonder as there are some salt basins around the area, which sometimes are full of flamingos. After the road trip, one is needed to take a boat ride in order to reach the island. Once on the island one is greeted with breathtaking views and unique scenery that is absolutely amazing.
The Mida Creek
The Mida Creek reserve is formed of extensive mangrove forests, warm shallow waters and large areas of mud flats at low tide. This area hosts not only many local birds, such as greater flamingo, yellow-billed stork, great white egret and malachite kingfisher, but is also the winter home of many migrants such as the crab plover, curlew sandpiper, whimbrel and sanderling. The osprey and African fish eagle are often overhead.
The Gede Ruins
Gede Ruins, an archeologist’s delight, was one of the ancient Arab towns that dotted the East African Coast. It dates from the late 13th or early 14th Century and was finally abandoned in the early 17th Century. Excavated since 1927, many areas have been revealed, including the Great Mosque, the Palace, several residential houses and pillar tombs. Surrounded by tall shady trees, a walk through Gede is a must for anyone interested in the Swahili people and Kenya’s history.
Marafa Hell’s Kitchen
Marafa Hell’s Kitchen is one of the best-kept secrets along the Kenyan coast. A hidden gem that stands in magnificence, leaving anyone who sees it in awe. This hidden gem is located 40km from Malindi, in the quiet town of Marafa. The place is known locally as “Nyari” which translates to “The place broken by itself”. This is because the depression formed naturally over thousands of years through harsh weather. Surprisingly, the gorges often take shapes as if someone sculpted them. A short distance away from the resort you can as well visit Malindi Museum, House Of Columns, Portuguese Chapel, Vasco da Gama Pillar, Maasai Market, Falconry and Rosada Beach Club.
