Kayaking in Bamburi Beach, Mombasa, Coast Province Kenya
The calm crystal clear waters offer 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 blueness of the water makes Kayaking as memorable as ever.
The natural coral reef which is between 0.5 km/546 yd and 2 km/1.5 mi makes it a more safe place for kayaking within the reef. If one paddles towards the reef, some miles offshore, you will find that the water is very warm and blue and the coral reef provides some kind of shelter and a shallow kind of lagoon with some white breakers running almost the length of the entire beach.
Water temperatures range between 24- 30°C/75.2-86°F. It is sometimes dangerous kayaking in some locations, but such locations are clearly marked and one can easily spot them. Kayaking at this spot gives you the opportunity to explore hidden caves and mangrove forests, which are partially underground.
