North Coast of Kenya
Set amidst lush tropical gardens on a magnificent sweep of pure white sandy beach, the Bamburi Beach Hotel looks out over the Indian Ocean towards the coral reef of the marine parks. This large, bustling and friendly hotel makes the ideal family holiday venue - more especially because everything is all inclusive - so the kids can have whatever they want without heavy bills for the parents at the end.
Location and seasons The Bamburi Beach Hotel is located on the Kenyan coast (12 km north of Mombasa, 25 km from Moi International Airport, 500 metres from the Mombasa Malindi Road). Kenya's northern coast, one of her most popular beach holiday destinations, offers clear blue sea, marine parks, excellent water sports, coral reefs, monsoon winds, numerous hotels and beach resorts, family vacations, sun n sand, cultural and beach travel and more. Close to Mombasa, it is also within easy reach of Malindi, Lamu, Diani and many other popular Kenya safari resort hotels.
The background Kenya's stunning coastline (485 kms from Nairobi) runs 700 km between the Tanzanian and Somali borders and is renowned for its silken white sandy beaches, coconut palms, sheltered lagoons, pellucid blue waters, remote islands, uncharted mangrove swamps and mysterious Arab and Swahili ruins, many of which date back to the 8th Century AD. An idyllic climate cooled by the monsoon, the Swahili coast offers a daily average of 8 hours of sunshine, and the hot steamy climate is tempered by the monsoon winds: the south-easterly Kusi, which blows from April to October; and the north-easterly Kaskazi which blows from November to March.
Kenya's pristine and well-developed coral reef extends virtually without break from Shimoni in the south to Malindi in the north, some 230 Kms in total. The reef is broken only in a few places by river mouths and creeks; and of these the deepest and most sheltered safe channels through the reef are those that lie on either side of Mombasa Island.
