Robinson Island

Robinson Island is situated in the North of Malindi and about forty-five-minute drive past Ngomeni Salinas. The road leading there is full of wonder as there are some salt basins around the area, which sometimes are full of flamingos. After the road trip, one is needed to take a boat ride in order to reach the island. Once on the island one is greeted with breathtaking views and unique scenery that is absolutely amazing.
