The Kuruwitu area has some of the last unspoilt beaches on the Kenyan coast. There are no tourists or beach boys. We are also just a couple of kilometres from The Kuruwitu Marine Conservancy where the snorkelling is good, just metres off the shore. - There is a glass bottom boat as well as a fishing/dolphin spotting boat for hire.
Activities: A two-man Canoe is available to use.
If you can bear to drag yourself away from the fabulous pool and beach - the world class Vipingo Ridge PGA golf course is less than a 15 minute drive away. The elegant club house has a restaurant in a beautiful setting. The Vipingo Ridge Beach Bar just a couple of kilometres from the house overlooks the marine conservancy and affords a delightful setting for lunch. Kilifi is a bustling little town 25 minute drive to the North. A supermarket and others shops can be found here, and dhows can be hired for Sundowner trips up the creek from here. Diving, sailing and water-ski-ing is available at Mnarani Club, on the south side of Kilifi creek. Malindi is just over an hours drive Northwards.
Head 25 minutes south, from the house and you will reach Mtwapa town which has a few restaurants and tourist activities. The Bamburi Nature trail is 45 minutes from the house as is the Citi Mall shopping complex. Old town Mombasa (Fort Jesus etc) is approx a one hour drive south from the house.
