Kilifi Harbour and Bridge
Kilifi is a busy small town with plenty of shops and services including a Tusky’s supermarket. All kinds of watersports and activities are available – from deep-sea fishing to snorkelling, waterskiing and scuba diving – and a good starting point is the Mnarani Club just to the south of Kilifi Creek. Kilifi attracts ocean sailors and the creek offers a fabulous deep water yacht anchorage and is ideal for boating and windsurfing. Larger boats can be hired from the Boatyard about a mile up the creek on the south shore, where there is a pleasant bar, good company and simple food and drink.
Kilifi is about one hour’s drive from Mombasa to the south and a little less from Malindi to the north. Kamili Cottage is situated just south of Kilifi Creek, around 1500 metres from the main coastal highway and a few minutes’ drive from the town. There is an excellent new golf course at Vipingo Ridge about 20 minutes away – the course has been designed and built to the exacting USGA standard and is of international class. It has a spectacular setting, at the top of the ridge overlooking the Indian Ocean.
