Eat your meals under the stars and relax with a drink from the licensed bar on our garden TV lounge veranda with a large selection of DVD's, CD's, Books, Games etc. the perfect place to chill out and catch the breeze drifting in from the Indian Ocean.
Regarded as one of the most beautiful coral beaches in the world and with a spectacular abundance of sea life rated as one of the worlds’ premier dive spots, Watamu Beach is just 100 meters down a sandy beach road from our front gate. When the tide is out the many rock pools give up their secrets. When the tides in take a trip on a glass bottomed boat to the Mida Creek, see the dolphins, snorkel in the calm turquoise Marine Park of the Indian Ocean then BBQ in the mangroves. Kite surfing or a trip on a local fishing dhow makes for a perfect afternoon.
