Kneeboarding in Bamburi Beach, Mombasa, Coast Province Kenya
The calm crystal clear waters provide with an overwhelming sea experience.The beach is calm due to an offshore reef and during high tides, it can get narrow at places and also seaweed infested. The natural coral reef which is between 0.5 and 2 km / 546.81 yd and 1.2 mi, makes it a more safe place for knee-boarding within the reef.
Given that the best months to visit the spot is from January to March, where days are dry and humidity at very comfortable levels, that is why knee-boarding at the Bamburi beach is an all year round activity. Knee-boarding at this spot can be an amazing experience on both small and medium size tides, but mostly it would depend on ones experience.
Most importantly though, is to make sure that one does not go beyond the reef. All in all, the spot is suitable for both experienced and amateur knee-boarders. Knee-boarding is conducted on daily basis depending on tides and winds suitability.
