Why go to Mombasa

Travel to Mombasa to see the best of a traditional African city and enjoy holidays in all-inclusive resorts that snuggle in close to the white sands of the Kenyan coastline. There's also the chance to complement holidays in Mombasa with a safari, which makes this destination a great choice for those who like a bit of variety during their sunshine beach break.

The possibilities for unforgettable holiday experiences are endless in fascinating Mombasa.

You can get direct flights from the UK into Mombasa's Moi International Airport (MBA). Whether you're staying in the heart of the island city, or transferring to one of the excellent resorts along the coast, the transfer is fairly swift.

Mombasa sits on the eastern coast of Africa, where the land meets the Indian Ocean, and is the second largest city in Kenya. The intriguing city is based on an island and is reached by bridges and ferries.

Follow the narrow maze of streets in old Mombasa to discover bustling markets and bazaars where food and crafts are for sale, and visit the imposing 16th-century Fort Jesus.

Most holidaymakers opt to stay in the beach resorts that can be found on the coast to the north and south of lively Mombasa. The excellent hotels are usually all-inclusive and offer everything on-site, from breakfast at dawn, through water sports during the day, until night falls and shows are put on for the entertainment of guests.

Popular resorts include Malindi, Watamu, and Lamu, which can be found north of Mombasa, and Diani Beach in the south.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
