Mombasa South
is the section of the Kenyan Coast which runs south from the city of Mombasa.

The city of Mombasa is centred on an historic fort and a maze of small streets set on an island in a tidal estuary. The southern half of the island is dominated by a large commercial port and associated industry, whilst the mainland either side is packed with busy modern suburbs.

There is no bridge linking the city of Mombasa with the southern coastline, it is necessary to connect by ferry. Around the landing lies the substantial shanty settlement of Likoni, after which there is around 10km of coastline which remains relatively undeveloped due to the lack of prime beaches.

There is only one accommodation option of note along this stretch ...


Tijara Beach ... is a small and reasonably high quality guesthouse.


We tend to recommend Mombasa South for inclusion in trips relatively rarely, although it can work out for people wanting a small and intimate place to stay close to the city.

Generally our guests tend to be looking for a rather more idyllic beach paradise, such as those found in the Msambweni and Kinondo areas to the south, Lamu Island, Manda Island and Tana Delta to the north, or further afield on the Tanzania Coast or the Seychelles.
