Kenya is fortunate to have an abundance of protected coral reefs and beaches (250 mi/420 km worth). Malindi, 75 mi/120 km north of Mombasa on what's called the Coral Coast, provides a very nice introduction to the area. You can enjoy surfing, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing and other watersports there. The Malindi Marine National Park has fine beaches, clear water and very colorful fish.
The town itself has handsome post-colonial homes, trees and flowers. We enjoyed walking its narrow streets, and there are some interesting shops for antiques and textiles. It merits at least a one-day visit. Many of the colonial-style hotels run by Italian families are good values.
