Mwamba Centre is a beautiful and welcoming place, set right by a clear beach which you'll have pretty much to yourselves! The location is great, 5-10 minutes away from Watamu centre on a bike/car, walkable distance along the beach. As it isn't right in the centre, you can appreciate beautiful vegetation and wildlife (with a nature trail in a small forest right behind the centre!).
The staff and volunteers do their best to make you feel at home, and you'll quickly feel part of the community. It's a perfect -and economic- way to get to know local people, culture and dishes. This simple guesthouse provides a nice space to relax, as well as ideas for local tourism and activities. If you're looking for an uncomplicated, spontaneous and relaxed holiday, Mwamba is the place for you!
