Kilifi Harbour and Bridge
Kilifi is a busy small town with plenty of shops and services including a Tusky’s supermarket. All kinds of watersports and activities are available – from deep-sea fishing to snorkelling, waterskiing and scuba diving – and a good starting point is the Mnarani Club just to the south of Kilifi Creek. Kilifi attracts ocean sailors and the creek offers a fabulous deep water yacht anchorage and is ideal for boating and windsurfing. Larger boats can be hired from the Boatyard about a mile up the creek on the south shore, where there is a pleasant bar, good company and simple food and drink.
The staff at Beach House will be happy to help arrange day trips to Mombasa, Malindi, the ancient ruins at Gedi or the Arabuko Sokoke Forest – all are within about an hour’s drive. There is an excellent new golf course at Vipingo Ridge about 20 minutes away – the course has been designed and built to the exacting USGA standard and is of international class. It has a spectacular setting, at the top of the ridge overlooking the Indian Ocean.
