Additional Location Information

"Home of the Sweet People" is what "Watamu" means in Swahili, but you'll find it's much, much more than friendly faces (of which there are many). Watamu is prized for its 5 km long powdery white sand beach (named the 2nd best beach in Africa by CNN Travel in 2012), warm coral-reefed lagoon exploding in a million shades of aqua, a rich tidal inlet rife with diversions, and its residential & relaxed atmosphere. Watamu has remained so pristine because it's actually a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and a 229 square km National Marine Park—designated as a place of "natural excellence", and we couldn't agree more.

This beach is free from commercialism, there are no "beach boys", no onshore fishing—just a peaceful, long stretch of blinding-white beach with pristine conditions most of the year. At low tide Heavenly has access to the full length of Turtle Bay, and at high tide a headland magically turns Heavenly into its own private cove.

Activities in Watamu abound. For water lovers, one can go snorkeling & scuba diving in the marine park; dolphin & whale watching; water skiing and wake boarding; kite surfing; stand-up paddle boarding; deep-sea fishing (we strongly encourage catch & release only); dhow sailing trips; and more. On land there is a new lovely, well kept 9-hole pitch & putt golf course; a reptile center (popular with kids); ancient ruins; exploring the largest coastal forest in East Africa; cycling; turtle watching; luxuriating at a nearby spa; and much more.
