Mombasa, Kenya's most tangibly heady, and lively city is a melting pot of languages and cultures from all sides of the Indian Ocean. It’s a place steeped in history, yet at the same time fascinating commercial and cosmopolitan port town.
Modern Mombasa is a city of great diversity and life. This is a town where all are welcomed and quickly absorbed. It combines city excitement with beach relaxation. The coastal area features nearly 500 kilometres of tranquil white beaches, golden sand dunes, warm aqua water and pleasing secluded islands.
Mombasa's blend of India, Arabia and Africa can be intoxicating, and many visitors find themselves seduced despite its grime and sleaze which somehow only adds to the place's considerable charm. There is a tropical climate all year and it is a great destination filled with activities for all ages.
