Mombasa is an island connected to the mainland by bridges and ferries. The town over looks a wide harbor, where commercial shipping mingles with traditional sailing dhows.

Modern Mombasa is a city of great diversity and life. This is a town were all are welcomed and quickly absorbed into this great coastal melting pot. Mosques, Hindu Temples and Christian churches surround streets that thrive with a world of cultures.

Mombasa Beaches and Water Sports

Mombasa has undoubtedly one of the best white sandy beaches in Africa. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean cater to all types of tourists: those looking for a quiet swim, a place for kids to play, deep-sea fishing, and water sports activities such as scuba diving and sailing.

Old Town: This lively and exotic area in Mombasa is famous for its spices, Arabic architecture, narrow winding streets, busy markets, and traditional clothes - khanga and kikoy that is a hallmark of coastal Mombasa.

Old Harbor: Old Harbor still revels in its colonial past and is still bustling with activity and trade. Here, you can watch the dhows (in ancient décor) cruising the waters and even taking their trade to as far as Yemen and the coastal regions of the Persian Gulf.

Fort Jesus: On the waterfront, overlooking the harbor, stands the 16th century Fort Jesus that has witnessed many battles and has borne evidence to Kenya's struggle for independence, is a must see for any tourist visiting Mombasa.

Traditional Markets: Shopping in Nairobi is a delightful experience and makes for an interesting way to tour Mombasa on foot. From local craft vendors to the savvy merchants in Biashara Street, Mombasa is great place to shop for curios, ethnic wear and traditional beach wear - khanga and kikoy.

Activities: Though an island port city, Mombasa is famous for its architectural buildings, traditional markets, rides on traditional trade ships (dhows), and museums that tell the stories of slave trade, colonial rule in East Africa and the emergence of a country that values its freedom as much as it values its natural resources and cosmopolitan character.
