For beach holiday lovers, The East African Coast
Kenya has a coastline approximately 536 KM fronting the Indian Ocean, with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, from long white sandy beaches to some of the most diverse marine life in the oceans. The beautiful bright corals (soft and hard) are abundant as well as dolphins, butterfly fish, sharks and turtle. The colourful beauty of the coral, complimented by the large number of yellow and red tuna and snappers are unmatched.
Converge will spoil you for choice in beach sports with protective reefs creating a perfect haven for swimming, water-skiing, sailing, jet skiing, parasailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, boating etc. Charter yachts and sea kayaks are widely available.
