Protected by a coral reef, Nyali Beach serves as a wide, white sand beach that's part of the Mombasa Marine Reserve. The site offers diving and snorkeling opportunities. Consistent side-shore winds make this beach a popular kite-surfing and sailing spot, and there are beach volleyball nets under the shade of palm trees. Snorkel and see a colorful variety of marine species such as crabs, starfish, and cucumber sea urchins. Sea turtles and migratory birds like crab plovers may also keep you company here. Use our Mombasa sightseeing planner to visit Nyali Beach on your trip to Mombasa, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • White sand, serene, great community vibe, and looked after and clean too. A bit of a gem in Mombasa. Easily accessible too by tuktuk or cab. Our young kids enjoyed it very much.
