“An Enchanted Underwater World”

Further north along Kenya’s spectacular Indian Ocean coast is the Kiunga Marine National Reserve. This pristine ecosystem incorporates a chain of about 50 calcareous offshore islands and coral reefs in the Lamu Archipelago. Visitors can view the teeming sea life in the coral reefs, seagrass and extensive mangrove forests which are a refuge for sea turtles and dugongs. The reserve provides ideal opportunities for windsurfing, diving and snorkeling, water skiing and sunbathing.
