Tropical Paradise Feb 21, 2012
Fewer beach boys,quiet,safe for swimming,walking and sunbathing:-)I easily explored the rock pools at low tide and found lion fish and brightly colored crabs which i found absolutely interesting,there also some beautiful birds around i enjoyed watching.

A trip on the boat felt amazing.....and everyone was really helpful."Watamu" meaning "sweet people" in Swahili.Heard the name came from the fact that Arab slave traders used to distribute sweets to entice the local population before taking them as slaves.

Great place to visit,tropical paradise,diverse people and very interesting culture,i would never mind going back:-)
Beautiful swahili culture.
