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.
Escape the urban bustle at Watamu Beach and Spiaggia delle Tartarughe. Let the collections at Gede Ruins and Ndoro Sculpture Garden Malindi capture your imagination. Change things up with a short trip to Isola dell'Amore in Watamu (about 34 minutes away). There's still lots to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, look for gifts at Nakumatt Malindi, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, and pause for some serene contemplation at Portuguese Church.

For maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Malindi trip planning site.
