Visiting the coast of Kenya is an entirely different adventure from the usual savannahs and safaris offered inland. Where the land is action-packed and wild, the coast is low-key and serene. Ending your Kenyan trip with a few nights on the Indian Ocean makes for a well-rounded and memorable getaway. The coast offers a “choose your own adventure” itinerary of activities depending on how adventurous you want to be.
If you want to relax on the white sandy beaches and blissfully warm waters of the East African coastline, head to Diani Beach. Sit back to watch traditionally rigged dhow boats quietly sailing along or explore a sandbar in the lagoon. There’s a good mix of places to stay, eat and a few places to find a good cocktail.
Watamu Beach is a low-key peninsula dotted with deep mangroves and small, traditional villages. If you want to check out brightly colored coral, many tour companies offer half-day snorkel and diving excursions in the Arabuko-Sokoke National Park and the ruins of Gedi.
For some of the nicest hotels on the coast, look to Malindi. Malindi has seen rapid growth in recent years, but still retains one of the most appealing town centers in Kenya. You’ll find a blend of happy tourists and locals going about their business.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Ireland is a gorgeous country with friendly citizens and lots of areas to explore. Many travelers stick to Dublin, Cork or Belfast when they visit, but there are many cute and charming towns in between these major cities that should not be ignored. The best way to see all these places is to rent a car and do a road trip through Ireland. This is a great way to make travel memories that are memorable and off the beaten path. Ireland is a safe and easy country to navigate, so it’s a perfect trip for firs- time travelers as well as more experienced travelers.
