Wellness in Watamu! Why the Kenyan Coast is the perfect place for some time out



Oh the joys of travel – new places, new faces and exciting adventures awaiting. I am sure we are all looking forward to making the most of the summer this year and being able to travel again. One of my recommendations for those looking for a well-deserved break and some indulgent rest and relaxation can be found in a little hidden gem on the coast of Kenya.


Kenya is a beautiful and incredibly friendly country with the powerhouse city of Nairobi at its capital. It is well known around the world for its safari holidays and game viewing tours; however, many people have also come to Kenya to enjoy its beaches and coastal living. With direct flights to the capital from many destinations, including London and South Africa, Kenya is easy to travel to. Add on a short flight from Nairobi to the coast and you will find yourself in one of the most wonderful little towns called Watamu.
