Kenya - Malindi
The African, Arabic and Indian influences make Malindi a crossroads of cultures and traditions which attract the curiosity of many people and that makes this coastal town an ideal stopover to take a sea holiday or otherwise to take a relaxed rest after a long safari.
The swarming of the shops gives life to the foot paths in the town centre where it is fun to shop for articles of craftsmanship and interior designs or give vent to the creativity with help of tailors or the shoe makers who do their best to reproduce fantasies and ideas.
White and golden beaches are the ideal places to spend your days on the beach, to practice snorkeling, diving, kite surfing, horse-riding, jogging alternatively exploring the beauty of the Indian ocean in a boat.
The surroundings of Malindi are a true and proper taste of the African landscape where it is possible to sight see local villages, different ethnicities and to live from nearby the contact with the nature of Arabuko Sokoke, at the archaeological site of Gede Ruins, on the River Banks of River Sabaki, at the lagoons of Watamu or Mambrui.
A Golf Couse with 9 holes is open all the year for those who can’t do without practicing this royal sport and numerous tennis camps, gyms, personal trainers and yoga instructors are readily available on request.
Many international flights do a stopover at Mombasa while direct flights from Nairobi, Masai Mara and Lamu land at Malindi daily. Private flights from Mombasa and Nairobi to Malindi are easily organizable.
My dear Sabina, thank you for making my stay in Malindi so memorable. Your warm hospitality is a school on its own. I traveled and stayed at many places around the world but only few made an impact on me like Cozy point did and it is because of you! I loved everything from the artistic details of the house to theme dinners and tours with you. Sweet Shaba greeting me every morning by my door. I also enjoyed connecting with other travelers. I'm really looking forward to visiting again! Malindi will not be just a stopover in the airport it is part of the itinerary for all Lamu trips!
