South Coast

DESCRIPTION

From Mombasa and further south, the Kenyan coast is lined with white sandy beaches and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Here the wilderness meets the sea, and the ocean holds a world of spectacular coral reefs teeming with life and colour.

The coast is a place with a long and exotic history, its calm waters the traditional passage of the Arabian Spice Trade.

Along the length of this coast, Arab and Portuguese forts, Old Towns and the overgrown, deserted ruins of Swahili outposts bear witness to this fascinating history. In the winding medieval streets and bustling markets of Mombasa Old Town, life has continued unhurried and unchanged for more than 400 years.
