Nyali Beach is located at 10 km/6 mi from Mombasa's city center and approximately at 15 km/9 mi from the Mombasa International airport. Nyali Beach is the whitest and widest one along the north coast. The beach actually slopes at an angle and water depths actually depend on tides. The amazing part is that there is always water even at low springs compared to other locations of the north coast.

Snorkeling in Cade’s Reef, Antigua, Antigua & Barbuda
Cade’s Reef is located on the southwestern side of Antigua. It is one of Antigua’s most famous snorkeling dive site. The reef extends in 3.2 km/2 mi long, parallel to the southwest coast of Antigua, offering great reef fish and coral reef. Anyone who likes snorkeling, may have the opportunity to find a large variety of reef fish and colorful corals. The marine life includes sea fans, sponges, moray eels, sea turtles, sergeant majors, batfish, spadefish, barracuda, octupus, sea urchins and even the nurse shark. Because of the rich marine life, a park named ”Underwater Cade’s Reef Antigua Park” has been created in a specific area of Cade’s Reef.
The temperature of water is pretty stable all over the year, at about 25˚C/77˚F. The maximum depth is at 8 m/26 ft, while the average depth is at 5 m/16 ft. Water visibility ranges between 10 m/32 ft and 30 m/98 ft. This is very important for a snorkeler who wants to see clearly the bottom, where fish are hiding. Generally, the weather in Antigua is quite stable. However, in case of unpredictable weather conditions, there are many sheltered sites, especially on the west and the south, where snorkelers will be safe.
