Malindi

Offering pristine, palm-lined beaches, all-inclusive resorts, and warm, sunny weather, the port town of Malindi rightly established itself as one of Kenya's prime tourism spots.
Here are some ideas for day two: get outside with Outdoor Activities, enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia delle Tartarughe, tour the pleasant surroundings at Watamu Turtle Watch, then find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Mangrove Boardwalk Mida Creek, and finally take an in-depth tour of Gede Ruins.

You're likely to visit Nairobi at least once on a trip to Kenya, as the sprawling city houses the country's international airport and remains the jump-off point for many tours and safaris.
Karen Village and Polka Dot Art Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. Visiting Karura Forest and Nature & Wildlife Tours will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Nairobi: Mount Longonot (in Maai Mahiu), Sigona Golf Club (in Kikuyu) and Limuru Country Club (in Limuru). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages, take in the exciting artwork at Upepo Photography Gallery, examine the collection at Aero Club of East Africa (ACEA), and buy something for everyone on your list at The Hub Karen.
