Mombasa is Kenya's second largest city and has a rich history dating back over 1500 years when it started as a trading port for merchant ships from the Orient, Arabic and Europe. The Portuguese explorer, Vasco Da Gama, landed here in 1498 and established a Portuguese colony at the coast. There are a range of hotels to the north and south of Mombasa, known as the North and South coast respectively. [See below]. See More on Mombasa, including what to see and Where to Stay.
Mombasa North Coast Beaches

There are many hotels along this stretch though the concentration of the hotels thins out while moving towards Kilifi. There are various activities on offer ranging from nature trails to fishing and golf.
Mombasa South Coast
To get to “South Coast" from Mombasa, one takes the Ferry across a narrow channel, usually a colorful experience owing to lots of noise and bustle of the Swahili people as they go about their daily business. South Coast is generally a quieter and cleaner stretch of coastline than the North coast. Beaches include Diani, Tiwi and Gazi, leading up to the Pemba area. Accommodation varies from hotels to cottages.
Lamu is a small, historic coastal town, with narrow winding streets, old mosques, colourful markets and uses donkeys and dhows for transport rather than vehicles. The slow pace of life here, magnificent beaches and the rich culture make this an exotic place to visit where time seems to stand still. This is a perfect place for honeymooners and couples
