Beautiful faces-Beautiful places. Aug 14, 2013
The hotel we stayed in was the best,severin sea lodge,the staff were friendly,food was great,it was overlooking the ocean and the pool....The places we went too were interesting,not boring at all,feeding the fishes at the sea was the best part,unforgettable experience catching one in your hands under the water and it slips away,feeding them bread and hundreds cover your body under water fighting over pieces of bread,LOVED IT.I loved the weather....raining but not cold,only this time it rained for a few days and stopped.Sometimes the beach men are annoying trying to sell stuff you dont need but overall Mombasa,Kenya is a great place to be.

Coastal Beach Aug 28, 2011
THE SWAHILI COAST of Kenya faces the warm blue water of the Indian Ocean and extends for a distance of about 536kms, from the border with Tanzania in the South to Somalia in the North.

Much of the shoreline is covered by a continuous strip of magnificent white soft sand beach, protected by an unspoilt coral reef that has been compared in equal terms to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia and the Red Sea Coral Reef. The beaches are backed with coconut palms, frangipani and casuarinas trees, interspersed with exotic mango and avocado trees, floral shrubs and bougainvillaea. Forests of mangroves to the far south create a beautiful ecological zone and huge baobab trees grow along the north coastal strip.

A short distance inland from the coast, the land is traversed by scores of streams and rivers that seasonally flow from the high ground, through jungles and narrow fertile plains to the sea.
