The Kenyan and Tanzanian coastline hosts a collection of picturesque tropical beaches. These beach destinations are ideal for relaxing after an epic safari or recuperating after climbing one of Africa's famed peaks such as Mount Kilimanjaro or Mount Kenya. In Kenya the area in and around Mombasa provides a vibrant atmosphere with its large resorts and hotels. Further along the coastline and on the islands of Lamu and Manda it quietens down where some of the more idyllic and pristine spots can be accessed. Tanzania is known for its white sand beaches and secluded bays and of course the world-renowned Zanzibar island with its rich Arabian trading influence and the magical age-old Stone Town. There is excellent fishing, diving, snorkeling all along the coast. The rustic islands of Pemba and Mafia offer more secluded camps and lodges.
