Popular places to visit in Mombasa
Gracing the coast of the Indian Ocean, Kenya's second-largest city is a mecca of spices and storytellers. As East Africa's largest port, this sweetly chaotic city has long been an anchor for seafarers and traders who take to the land and spread their stories. While quintessentially Kenyan at its core, Mombasa's Arab and Indian flair only adds to its intrigue. In this spirit, Mombasa vacations are perfect for the poetic adventurer, or really anyone who wants to peel away at its myriad layers and get to know another side of Kenya. Major Attractions
Mombasa vacation packages will give you access to more than just the city's mysterious soul. Choose from a plethora of beaches including English Point, the white-sand Bamburi Beach, and Shanzu Beach. Snorkel in Mombasa Marine National Park, and then visit the Old Town to buy some souvenirs. On the north coast, Mombasa's Mtwapa Creek offers the opposing attractions of bird-watching by day and excellent clubbing by night. For a historic fix, don't miss the timeworn Fort Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Browse rental cars in Mombasa so you can get from the best hotels to the best attractions with ease. Recurring Festivals and Events
Those interested in Kenyan culture should vacation during November, when residents revel with traditional music and dance at Mombasa's Carnival—the most popular festival in the country. August is also a great time to visit for those interested in culture, since the Mombasa International Cultural Festival celebrates the diversity of the region and its inhabitants.
