History

The open and friendly Giriama tribe which is dominating Kenyas coastal region, is enriching Watamu with its colourful way of life, artwork and history. Places like the Gede ruins are relics of the Arabic past and date back over 600 years. 

 

Nightlife / lifestyle

Watamu offers a variety of nightlife entertainment. The international ComeBack club lets you dance through the night to African and western music. And bars such as the Red Lion, Car Wash, Papa Remo or Pili Pan let you mingle with the locals, party on the beach or enjoy the sunset with a drink in hand. 

 

Culinary 

Not far from the hotel you will find the dreamy village of Watamu. Hidden within the old fishing village are various treats to be found. Buy your own octopus at the vibrant turning point of Gede   or try the local donuts at the market in Timboni. Amongst the cultural African foods, you will find delicious Italian gelaterias, restaurants and cafes as a result of the culinary Italian influence on the region.
