Watamu

Visit Watamu

Introduction

Watamu is Swahili for ‘sweet people' and this sleepy little village is a suitably charming place on the edge of wide, white sand beaches and pure blue sea, which is suitable for swimming during both high and low tides. Underwater, Watamu teems with tropical fish, flashing bright beneath the blue.

Offshore coral formations in three bays - Watamu Bay, Turtle Bay and Blue lagoon - make up the protected Watamu Marine National Park. The park is considered to be the best diving and snorkelling site in East Africa, and this is also big game fishing territory, as described so evocatively by Ernest Hemingway. The famous Hemingway's resort is particularly noted for its excursions - it's about the sport here, and most billfish are tagged and released.
