Fantastic beach in front of Voyager Beach resort. Shallow water mostly. Lots of vendors on the beach, including camel rides.

The beach is great but the tide can change quickly. Camel rides often available. People selling things but not too much hassle. Great place for quiet walking.

Shame about the beach sellers who set up camp every day, all day. Could not walk on the beach without being pestered. Not safe to walk on at night. The sea was very warm and clear.

If tranquillity is what you’re looking for you will love this beach! We went there during the week so there weren’t many people, there are few bars alongside the beach where you can get drinks and snacks from, there are also camel rides as well...More

This is a good beach at high tide and a superb one at low tide. It is a must see on a visit to Mombasa especially at low tide where it comes into a league of it's own.

I took a walk along the beach and the beach was clean and less populated. There are some gentlemen who can keep your belongings in safe custody with a fee. it is a good place for family outings

It has nice warm waters. We opted to keep our valuables at the hotel next this beach at a small fee though they were other locals offering the same service in the beach side. There is readily available local transport on standby .Oh yah there...More

It was hard to swim here because of the seaweed and plastic. Travel to the North or South coast for better beaches.
