South of Mombasa, a continuous strip of beach runs between Likoni and Msambweni, backed by palms and broken once or twice by small rivers. Along the 100km stretch of coast south from Mombasa to the Tanzanian border, there’s just one highly developed resort area, Diani Beach. South of Diani, the coast is little known and, in most tour operators’ minds at least, nobody stops again until they reach Shimoni. This is great news if you have the time to go searching out untrodden beaches. With your own vehicle, or on an organized trip, you can also visit the Shimba Hills National Reserve and the neighbouring Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary, either overnight or on an easy day-trip excursion.

Mombasa’s south coast, accessible only by ferry or air, is an idyllic seaside destination where you receive impeccable, personalized services in some of the luxurious boutique accommodations that are perfect for when you want to retreat into a coastal paradise. The most well-known of the beaches is Diani where you will find most of the south coast resorts, many of which are situated in the clearings of the Jadini Forest. The other secluded beaches south of Diani are Galu, Msambweni, Funzi Island and Chale Island, and these tend to be more exclusive than the north coast beaches or even Diani with fewer visitors. Other seashores include Shelly near the Likoni Ferry and then Tiwi that is adjacent to Diani ending with Shimoni near the Tanzania border. While staying at your beach lodging on the south coast, AfricanMecca Safaris recommends that you take full advantage of the sand and surf by partaking of the many water sports activities, all of which are available to book at the time of planning your trip to Kenya. Even if you are a novice, you will find an aquatic activity that fits your personal taste, whether it be reeling in a marlin or sailfish during an exhilarating deep-sea fishing excursion, sailing through tranquil waters, skimming across the surface of the Indian Ocean while windsurfing, kitesurfing or waterskiing or discovering endemic marine species while snorkeling or scuba diving at Kisite Marine Park or nearby reefs. World record catches make the south coast a much-desired destination for anglers, and we recommend that your adventure-seeking beachfront tour of Kenya include some time set aside for catching a giant of the Indian Ocean, such as marlin, swordfish, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, to name just a few of the most challenging fish. Billfish season is November through March while August to October is the Yellowfin Tuna season, and many other species are found in the waters during any time of the year. Whether you need rejuvenation after your safari or time to rest after an international flight to Kenya, the picturesque setting of Mombasa’s south coast is sure to revive your energy.
