28 Mar 10 Things to do and see in Kilifi
To most people, Kenya is probably known as a perfect safari destination but the country in East Africa has a lot more to offer: endless white beaches is one more reason to visit Kenya. During my 10 day trip in Kenya, I spent 4 nights in Kilifi, a town about 60 km north of Mombasa. Besides the stunningly beautiful beaches, the coastal town has much more to explore. Hence, I put together a list of 10 things to do and see in Kilifi.
These are my favorite things to do:
1. Explore the town of Kilifi
Check out the local shops, buy some fresh fruits and vegetables and eat out in a local restaurant.
2. Visit Vuma Cliffs
It is a spectacular scenery of huge waves crashing against wild rough cliffs.
3. Admire the Bioluminescence Plankton at the Kilifi creek
The planktons are tiny single-cell organisms that create a very unusual and beautiful virtual display that can only be found in a few places in the world. Unfortunately, it’s really tough to capture it with a camera unless you are a professional photographer.
4. Chill and sunbath at the endless beach of Bofa Beach
Besides chilling on the most stunning beach of Kilifi, don´t miss out on doing some water sport @ 3 Degree South.
Don´t forget to pin my post:
5. Do some yoga and pilates at ´The Creek Club´
The Creek Club is a fitness and leisure center in Kilifi.
6. Visit ´The Musafir Dhow´
It is an amazing project to create a platform for the message of freedom, peace and unity.
7. Watch the sunset, have dinner and Mnazi (palmwine) at Giriama Paradise (Fumbini)

How to get to Kilifi?
I went by public transport (Matatu) but you can also get an uber or let your lodge arrange a taxi for you.
Where to stay in Kilifi?
My favorite place to stay: Distant Relatives, an amazing eco-lodge. Check it out! BTW Distant Relatives also hosts one of Kenya’s most popular New Year’s Eve Party. Don´t miss out on that if you are around at this time.
