Although these waters have few  if any dangerous species,you should still watch out for barracuda, jellyfish and in some areas, reef sharks. (Thank goodness Piranhas are not on the list!

Going to Watamu? Spice things up on your next beach holiday!

Like it or not, it is a long-standing Kenyan tradition to go on a beach vacation and do nothing but sunbathe, splash around in the pool and maybe venture into limited culinary experiences. We’d rather stick to our comfort zones than obey the quiet little voice inside that’s nudging us toward unchartered territory. Ticketsasa, however, would like to challenge you to explore your sense of adventure. Welcome to our series of things you can do on your next beach holiday to break the monotony that is; retreating to a different town just to do the same thing you'd do back home (we see you "destination drinkers").  

About Watamu

Watamu is located between Blue Lagoon and Watamu Bay, only 105 km north of the infamous Mombasa town, and was voted the second best beach in Africa in 2012 according to this CNN article. A hidden gem that's mostly appealing to non-residents hoping to take advantage of its amiable climate, Watamu is vastly undiscovered by local tourists owing to it's quiet, serene ambiance. Little do we know, however, that Watamu is a paradise within our reach if only we took the time to explore it. Try out a number of these activities during your next visit to Watamu.
