South Coast, Mombasa

Mombasa’s south coast, accessible only by ferry or air, is an idyllic seaside destination where you receive impeccable, personalized services in some of the luxurious boutique accommodations that are perfect for when you want to retreat into a coastal paradise. The most well-known of the beaches is Diani where you will find most of the south coast resorts, many of which are situated in the clearings of the Jadini Forest. The other secluded beaches south of Diani are Galu, Msambweni, Funzi Island and Chale Island.
Other seashores include Shelly near the Likoni Ferry and then Tiwi that is adjacent to Diani ending with Shimoni near the Tanzania border. While staying at your beach lodging on the south coast, AfricanMecca Safaris recommends that you take full advantage of the sand and surf by partaking of the many water sports activities, all of which are available to book at the time of planning your trip to Kenya. Even if you are a novice, you will find an aquatic activity that fits your personal taste, whether it be reeling in a marlin or sailfish during an exhilarating deep-sea fishing excursion, sailing through tranquil waters, skimming across the surface of the Indian Ocean while windsurfing, kitesurfing or waterskiing or discovering endemic marine species while snorkeling or scuba diving at Kisite Marine Park or nearby reefs.
World record catches make the south coast a much-desired destination for anglers

  • We recommend that your adventure-seeking beachfront tour of Kenya include some time set aside for catching a giant of the Indian Ocean, such as marlin, swordfish, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, to name just a few of the most challenging fish. Billfish season is November through March while August to October is the Yellowfin Tuna season, and many other species are found in the waters during any time of the year. Whether you need rejuvenation after your safari or time to rest after an international flight to Kenya, the picturesque setting of Mombasa’s south coast is sure to revive your energy.
