Head Down To The Coast This Easter!

Who has ever complained of sun, sand and beach escapades? That’s right, no one. And this coming Easter holiday seems to be the perfect excuse to take advantage of this long overdue retreat.

The kids are home on mid-term and the family can finally have the bonding time they’ve been looking forward to.

So to avoid the last minute rush and planning, we’ve complied a list of fun places to be at the Coast this Easter. Check them out and get cracking!

Happy Easter Planning!



The coastline of Mombasa is a world of enthralling history and natural beauty. Lined with pristine palm-fringed beaches, and the calm inviting waters of the Indian Ocean, the obvious culinary attraction on the coast is seafood – naturally abundant and fresh.



The beach at Bamburi is a strip of pale sand, backed by palm trees and flowering beach convolvulus and lapped by shallow turquoise water, kept calm by an offshore reef. Watersports on offer include snorkelling, sailing, water-skiing, jet-skiing and sea kayaking.



As well as warm silken sands, hot golden sunshine and foaming shimmering ocean waves, Malindi offers you elegant resorts, serene hideaways and exquisite restaurants all nestled on the northern coastline of Kenya. The coral reefs of the nearby Malindi Marine National Park offer good snorkelling and diving.



Diani Beach is one of the most exclusive locations for Kenya beach holidays. Situated on the South Coast of Mombasa, the 25 Kilometre strip is made up of Tiwi, Diani, Galu, Kinondo & Chale Island. The pearly-white sands blend into the turquoise warm waters of the Indian Ocean creating a perfect backdrop of tranquillity for a truly memorable African Holiday.



Watamu is a small village on the Kenyan coast. The area has an international reputation for its pristine white-sand beaches and reef-protected lagoons. Watamu was voted one of the top ten beaches in the world; steeped in natural beauty and with three stunning bays, Watamu is a great beach holiday spot.
