Kilifi is a tourism town that is known for its pristine beaches and ancient swahili settlement ruins. Well, it’s also known for it’s prestigious residential golf development, Vipingo ridge.
I got to visit last week, touring a couple of sites. I was however unable to cover all of them, and this is an indication of just how limitless your options are with Kilifi.
The first step was to establish my accommodation. I slept at Kilifi Maghreb hotel. It’s accessible to everyone because of their wide range of options, from affordable camping, to cottages to apartments and finally a 3 bedroom house that one can rent for your duration there. It is suitably located 10 minutes (walk) from the beach and has excellent staff service. I’ll let you check out their well manicured gardens and exquisite interiors for yourself.
The rest of the blog will be a photo journal.
Malindi Marine Park Beach
We didn’t really go into the park. I’d just come from snorkelling in Shimoni.

Watamu Marine Park Beach
Other places to visit are;
-Arabuko Sokoke Forest-Got a chance to visit it some time back with family. There’s a -short hike to a very scenic viewpoint.
-Kuruwitu Marine Park
-Ken Snake Park
And then there’s all the places that you’ll never really know about until you actually visit and learn from the locals (like some rock formation a friend of mine from instagram visited, Kaloleni rock formation.)
