Mombasa is the second largest city in Kenya. The city is a gateway to Kenya’s coast and is situated on a coralline island bordering the Indian Ocean. From the 8th century to the 16th century, the city was the center of Arabic trade for ivory and slaves. Due to its legacy as the largest port in East Africa, Mombasa is a cultural melting pot. British, Arabic, Indian, and Chinese immigrants have enriched the city's architecture and cuisine. Today Mombasa is a bustling city with a major port, an international airport, and is an economic hub in the region. The main attractions are the pleasant atmosphere, excellent hotels, white sandy beaches, and unique marine wildlife. Mombasa offers a wide range of attractions on its travel itinerary that are well spread across the city. The coastline south of Mombasa is a world of natural beauty. Turquoise seas lap at sun-kissed beaches, where tourists sprawl under rustling palms. Rainforests consisting of lots of wildlife, birds frequent this idyllic stretch of the coastline, and coral reefs protect the swimming areas from larger waves. Explore Shelly Beach, Tiwi Beach and Diani Beach, the Jewels of Mombasa. Kenya is endowed with rich historical sites that are now top tourist destinations.
