Why go to Mombasa

Known for its beaches, rich trading heritage and unique blend of African, Indian and Arabian influences, Mombasa is an alluring and exotic destination. Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple, with family or friends, Kenya's second city is a top choice for a holiday.

In recent years, Mombasa has attracted legions of holidaymakers looking to blend beachside R&R with a Kenyan safari. It’s no surprise really, as the white sands of the city’s coastline are enough of a draw. And when you’ve had your fill of sunshine, taking a dip in the Indian Ocean or heading under water with a scuba diving trip is usually the order of the day.

Beyond the magic of the coast, Mombasa’s rich history, which features a cast of characters from India, Portugal, the Middle East and Britain, will appeal to both history buffs and culture cravers. You can brush up on its storied past at the 16th-century Fort Jesus, which is now home to a museum.
