The beach was lovely . White sands and fantastic rock pools at low tide. Lovely walking in the cool of the morning seeing all the wild life along the shore. Snorkling was fun in the warm water with plenty to see. Thanks to Nemo for showing us around.

We visited Watamu beach on Christmas day and the beach is excellent. The only dissapointment was lack of good restaurants by the beach.

Very nice and shallow beach. However the properties on the beach are apparently into some legal issue and have been closed down. There is a nice Italian restaurant on the beach.
Be ware of corals while walking in water - they are pretty sharp!

Beautiful white sand beach with these unbelievable crabs that are constantly scurrying everywhere. This is the best beach in the area by far. We had a very relaxing day there.
