Things to do around Watamu and Turtle bay

Hi Everyone,

I am planning a holiday to come to Kenya Mid July 2014, I yet undecided between Watamu and Diani Beach.

I will be travelling alone with 2 children aged 8 and 9, we will be doing a 3 day safari, but I want to ensure that there are enough things around for us to do and go and see for the rest of the holiday. Im keen to do a few day trips....basically we want a few days to relax around the pool and beach but also a few days to go and explore the area a little. I would really like the kids to see a Kenyan school and want them to experience the African culture as well as a great pool and fun!

Are there many places around that we can get to?

Thanks in advance for your advice

MIDA Creek, Sokoke Forest, Butterfly Farm, Turtle Rehabilitation Centre & GEDE Ruins.

There's a very nice Croc Farm in Malindi.

Hi we went to turtle bay in june the kids were kept occupied all the time at the hotel. If you want to go out you can get bikes free and visit the school the hotel sponsor or go to the orphanage. The rock pools are fun and there is a place to see the turtles. The village is worth a trip also. We are going back next year and will be doing another safari 3 day 2 night again hope this had helped you.
