Day 1: Transfer to Malindi
On arrival in Malindi, you will be met at the airport and driven to your hotel on the coast passing through the vibrant, coconut palm-lined streets of the town.
You will have the afternoon at leisure to settle into your tropical hotel. Perhaps have a cooling dip in the pool or the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, go for a sunset stroll on the beach and sip on a refreshing cocktail. Dinner and overnight at Sandies Tropical Village
Day 2 – 4: Relaxation and Leisure
During your beach vacation in Kenya spend your days soaking up the island spirit of Malindi, windsurfing, canoeing or diving amongst the multi-coloured coral reefs or just to chill out on the beautiful beaches of your beach resort in Kenya.
If you are a landlubber then why not have a game of volleyball or beach soccer before sipping on a refreshing drink whilst lounging in the sun.
Head out and about on a self-guided walking tour of Malindi’s Old Town. Visit the Jami Mosque and the two striking Pillar Tombs which are said to be dated back to the 14th Century.
Then browse Malindi’s huge open-air curio market admiring the intricate carvings and handmade jewellery and practice your bargaining skills. Or you can spend your day at leisure to relax and enjoy beach life.
