“A great day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

We had already been on a tour of Malindi with Abdul from TUNDA TOURS on an earlier occasion but my wife and I wanted to take a walk all round the town on our own. Abdul picked us up and took us to the centre of Malindi where we arranged to meet at a later time. We walked all round the streets completely without any hassle and even went into a bar at centre of the market for a cold beer and a rest (it was about 40 degrees outside!) All the people in the bar were friendly and the prices REALLY cheap. It is perfectly safe to walk around outside - unlike the resorts nobody takes a blind bit of notice unless you speak to them first and then the response is courteous and very friendly. We met up with Abdul in our favourite bar called Baobob which is overlooking Vasco Da Gamma Tower and after a pleasant lunch Abdul took us back to Watamu. A great adventure!
I will add photos shortly ..

“Everything for the tourist.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

A very large indoor market along the main shopping road in Malindi. Its almost opposite the 7 to 7 shop(buy your crisps and wine here).
Malindi market is owned by some very nice Indian people who are very hospitable. You will get a good price for your souvenirs and they are good quality.(most of them).
Dont buy from the beach sellers they are expensive. Its also a good place to buy your Safari clothing.
