It was a shaky beginning at the board walk then we enjoyed it all. We ensured our phones were fully charged for photoshoots especially when we walked without touching the side ropes for support. The best sea view is at the finish so finishing this...More

This is set in the most beustful setting on Mida creek and you can see the boardwalk was wonderfully but it needs repairing for safety.

The Boardwalk has been built by A Rocha and their ASSETS program to help local to pay school fees with tourism attraction. You'll learne about mangrove, the creeck and ask question about fisherie to better understand the key aspect this habitat plays for people life!

A combination of Beauty from Mangroves, Boardwalk, the Birds and Canoe Ride on the Ocean was a true walk through Nature. The local guide was very good and took us through identifying mangroves, crabs and other burrowing creatures to the boardwalk.

This was defintiely worth it. The boardwalk is incredibly pretty, and only 15 minutes from Watamu/Gede on a matatu. I would recommend the canoe tour as well, as you get to see some incredible crabs and get up close and personal with the mangrove trees....More

Never late than never I guess. You will not use a boat to go to Mida creek but the road. While at Mida, you use small boats to go to the Islands and they start from 1,000ksh. Hope it helps.

minimum Ksh350/= but as the money goes for a eco-boursary scheme, it worth being generous!
