Bamburi Overview

If you are visiting bamburi as a tourist then you will be staying in one of the hotels along Bamburi beach. The beach is beautiful with warm water however at low tide it can get crowded as the beach becomes a lot more compacted into one space due to the coral reef.

If you venture into Bamburi centre past Bamburi Cement then you will start to see how the locals really live. The small stalls and iron clad roofs, but quite populated.

Bamburi centre is an area where if I had gone as a tourist I would have been nervous and intimidated, however as I was staying with a family and living in the area you learn what is common and just how things are.

Do not walk in Bamburi alone after 8.30/9pm at night. It is an area at risk of armed muggings.
