11 Best Places to visit while at the Kenya Coast

1. FORT JESUS

Built in 1593-1596 by the Portuguese, Fort Jesus is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Mombasa’s top tourist attractions.

Italian architect, Giovanni Cairati, designed the structure, which is one of the world’s finest examples of 16th century Portuguese military architecture.

Built in the shape of a man, the fort was given the name of Jesus as a clear religious reference. The fort changed hands nine times between 1631 and 1875 before finally resting with the British.

Although partially ruined, Fort Jesus houses a museum built over the former barracks for the garrison. Exhibits include a vast collection of ceramics and pottery reflecting the various cultures that traded along the coast.

Fort Jesus has many battlements and ruined buildings within the compound, including Omani house, built in the late 18th century, which houses Omani jewelry and displays on Swahili life. The Passage of Arches was cut through the coral to give access to the sea.

2. MOMBASA MARINE NATIONAL PARK

One of the busiest of Kenya’s offshore reserves, Mombasa Marine National Park protects mangroves, seagrass beds, sandy beaches, and coral reef. Diving and snorkeling are popular activities – especially north of Mombasa, from Mtwapa Creek south to the entrance of Likoni. Seahorses, stingrays, and eels are among the marine creatures inhabiting the reserve, and the MV Dania is a popular wreck dive here. Those wishing to remain dry can view the diverse marine life from a glass-bottom boat.

The popular beaches of Nyali, Bamburi, and Shanzu all provide access to the marine park.

3. NORTH COAST BEACHES

The coastline north of Mombasa is a little livelier than the south coast and the resorts are closer to the airport and Mombasa City.

Palm-lined beaches, crystal clear waters, coral reefs, and a profusion of water sports, resorts, and entertainment venues provide plenty of tourist action.

Mombasa Marine National Park fringes the coast here with multi-hued coral gardens, drop offs, and Kenya’s best wreck diving on the MV Dania.

Traveling north from Mombasa, Nyali Beach is the first stop. Shops and hotels line the beach here, including Mombasa’s first mainland beach resort – Nyali Beach Hotel.

Further north, Bamburi Beach and Shanzu Beach are also tourist hubs with a wide range of accommodation from luxury resorts to beach bungalows.
