Protected by a coral reef, Nyali Beach serves as a wide, white sand beach that's part of the Mombasa Marine Reserve. The site offers diving and snorkeling opportunities. Consistent side-shore winds make this beach a popular kite-surfing and sailing spot, and there are beach volleyball nets under the shade of palm trees. Snorkel and see a colorful variety of marine species such as crabs, starfish, and cucumber sea urchins. Sea turtles and migratory birds like crab plovers may also keep you company here.
