Kisite Mpunguti National Marine Park

Unspoiled, beautiful and sun-kissed, the Kisite Mpunguti National Marine  Park was established to protect the scenic islands and special habitats of a wide range of endemic marine animals and breeding migratory birds. It covers an area of 39 km² and comprises four small islands surrounded by coral-reef. It lies in the coral gardens south of Wasini Island and encompasses three small coral rag forest islands, each with considerable areas of fringing reef. Kisite Mpunguti National Marine Park is one of the most rewarding snorkeling locations at the coast. Visitors can also enjoy bird watching, diving and of course, sunbathing.

Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park is considered to be the most magnificent of all Kenyan marine parks. Major attractions include dolphins (bottlenose and humpback dolphins), sea turtles (mainly green turtle and hawksbill), sea birds, and a multitude of coral fishes. With a bit of luck, humpback whales can be spotted during their migration time from July to October.

Key features

Marine life

Comprises about 250 recorded fish species, 70 resident dolphins and over 140 cataloged individuals, sea turtles, whales, 56 genera of corals, sea grass and gastropods. Many seabirds in large nesting colonies and internationally significant numbers of roseate terns and crab-plover.

Wasini Island 

The final pearl in the tropical beach necklace that stretches south of Mombasa is the idyllic island of Wasini, located about 76km south of the Likoni ferry crossing. With its faded white alleyways, Swahili fishing vibe and fat, mottled trees, this tiny island (it’s only 5km long) feel like a distant relative of Lamu and Zanzibar. It’s ripe with the ingredients required for a perfect backpacker beachside hideaway: it has that sit-under-a-mango-tree-and-do-nothing-all-day vibe, a coastline licked with pockets of white sand and Kisite Marine National Park, the most gorgeous snorkeling reef on the coast. In fact, the only things it doesn’t have are regular electricity, banana-pancake traveler cafes, backpacker hostels, and cars, and it’s all the better for it.
