- 18 February 2015
Watamu's beach has been named one of the best beaches in Africa in the TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Awards, which are based purely on independent travel reviews and ratings.
This comes after the Toronto Star named Watamu one of the ten best beaches to visit in 2015.
TripAdvisor reviewer Susan J, from Barkersfield in the United States, visited Watamu in January and wrote: "One of the best beaches in Africa. The beaches are clean, water is clear and warm. They have plenty of water sports like snorkeling, kite surfing, dolphin watching, deep sea fishing and paddle boarding. It has beautiful upscale resorts. They catch some of the biggest fish u have ever seen."
Medina Palms, a luxury resort in Watamu, was also recently named as one of TripAdvisor's Top 25 Hotels in Africa.
