If you have the opportunity, make sure you do a dive off the coast. The Kisite and Malindi parks are fantastic, but the Watamu Marine National Park is perhaps the best one of all with close to 1,500 fish species, 150 coral species and occasional visits from dolphins and whale sharks. There are several diving companies with qualified staff.
