Kenya boasts a wonderful coastline with many beach options.

Mainstream resort hotels offer excellent facilities, good value for money and are very suitable for families seeking an active beach holiday.

Quieter and more boutique beach lodges are available for anyone seeking a more relaxed, exclusive beach experience. A wide range of beach houses are also an option, often on a private basis.

The Kenya coast can be easily reached from most safari regions in Kenya, although it is often necessary to travel via Nairobi. There are direct scheduled flights to the coast from the Masai Mara.

However, should the Kenya coast not be ideal for you, or you are travelling at the wrong time of year, there are a variety of alternative destinations to consider including Zanzibar (Tanzania), Mauritius and the Seychelles.
