About the neighbourhood
Diving and snorkelling the Malindi and Watamu Marine National Parks is highly recommended. The coral gardens are spectacular and there is always a chance of spotting turtles, dolphins, giant groupers or the harmless Whale Shark who are regularly sighted in the area.

Malindi is famous for big game fishing safaris (tag and release). Sailfish, marlin and swordfish are all plentiful.

Safaris into the East Tsavo National Park, 100kms to the west of Malindi can be arranged. The classic tented safari camps are situated along the Galana river.

The Gedi ruins, remnants of a 13th to 17th century Swahili town abandoned 3 centuries ago, is also well worth a visit.

The numerous restaurants in Malindi are excellent thanks to the resident Italian and German influences.
