A few years back, we went to Watamu, a popular beach located at the coast of Kenya. Watamu is well-known for its white sand beaches and its deep blue sea. There is also the Watamu Marine National Park, a protected area and famous in Africa. Watamu is a charming town in the southern part of Malindi, which is located about 120km from Mombasa. One can take a domestic flight or a few hours drive from Nairobi to access Watamu, a place that is unique and memorable.
Since tourism is the main economic activity in this area, there is a lot to do. You can enjoy the white sand on the beach, the Indian Ocean breeze, and many activities like doing a tour of the sea with a glass-bottomed boat. Or visiting the Watamu resort, a reserve marine. The Marine Park is renowned and a great area for people who enjoy activities such as diving and snorkeling but also for people who are simply interested in visiting.
The shoreline in the area features white sand beaches and offshore coral formations arranged in different bays and beach. They are protected as part of the Watamu Marine National Park. In order to assist the managing authorities namely Kenyan Wildlife Service, in protecting the Park, local community groups, the tourist sector and environmental groups have formed a unique organization Watamu Marine Association. Turtle Bay is one of the Members of this group. ( Source : Wikipedia)
We took our stay at the Turtle bay resort. They offered lots of activities to help protect the environment such as cleaning the beach every morning and taking care of turtle nests and their eggs. And of course there was also daily entertainment. Like the Maasai People shows which consists of their traditional songs, dances and unique jumping.
These made our stay memorable. As we enjoyed the stunning coastline and the various activities going from swimming, getting sun-bathed along the pool to diving or just simply admiring the sunset. And of course, participating in activities aimed to protect our environment and the endangered turtle species! To put it simply, it was the perfect beach getaway.
Thanks for visiting. Have a fabulous New month!!!
