Trip Planner: Africa / Kenya / Coast Province / Shimoni / Wasini Island
Escape the buzz of everyday life with a visit to Wasini Island, small in size but big in charm and atmosphere. The island features no roads, so pedestrians create the only traffic on rustic footpaths--occasionally, you might spot a local transporting goods on a wheelbarrow. The shortage in amenities is more than made up for in outstanding snorkeling opportunities, offered by the nearby marine park. Make your Shimoni itinerary with Klarna Trips to find out what to see and where to go.

Great experience for snorkeling as well as scuba diving though be careful on the time of the month you choose to go. I understand the best time to go is around August to around December as you get to see humpback whales.
Visited before the sun got too hot and was pleasantly accompanied by a family of dolphins. It was great! Had a chance to swim in the middle of the ocean where the water had receded to reveal a beautiful stretch of white sand beach. The area is rocky though and I'd recommend rubber soled plastic shoes to protect your feet while in the water. You'll get to see beautiful colored fish and corals. Mpuguti Island also had huge coconut crabs! Carry a coconut to see them in action on it! Finally ended the tour with a sumptuous lunch at Mavungo. Sea food platter variety as well as my favorite drink of the day the Wasini special- delicious pineapple, lemon, orange and passion drink. Its definitely a site to visit.
The experience was put of this world. Snorkeling, dolphin watching. But be careful of the vessel you use, the seas can be rough on the way there or on the way back.
Beautiful trip, must wake up and start travelling from Diani to the Marine reserves by at least 7am ,carry your IDs or passports. Its Takes approximately an hour to get to reserve, get checked by government officials & board the boats to go watch dolphins on about an hour. Following dolphin viewing, you continue for an hour to the snorkeling area where you will see colour fish & Beautiful corals in the seabed and sea tortoises etc.(none swinners there is support swinners instructors) Lunch is up next, in a 30mins sail to Wasini islands ;where the locals prepare pre-ordered Lunch. P.S always give in your orders with the tour instructions after boarding. After lunch there is a simple tour of the Islamic Island Village, with only 1 pray school and no electricity. There they relay on solar for power. Simple warm welcoming community. Finally back to the boat and back to Diani by 5-6pm. Please note its a a full day your, enjoy 😉
That's heaven on earth, a very beautiful place, and friendly people actually there are a lot of love🌹. The geographical environment favors well in camping 👌
