Kenya Watamu Marine National Park

Located north of Mombosa on the north coast of Kenya, Watamu Marine National Park is a large coral reef about 300 meters offshore.

Manta rays, whale sharks and dolphins visit the area at certain times of the year with snorkelling and diving offering great views of the hundreds of species of fish living among the coral.

Turtles also live in the park, nesting on the beach with species including hawksbill, green turtles and the rarer olive ridley.

There is also the Kisite Marine National Park south of Mombasa and another marine park near Malindi.
