Landmarks & Monuments

Away from the expectations of many people, Malindi’s biggest attraction is the town itself, a serene place that stands out in such an extraordinary world. As much as it boasts a selection of must-see sights, its biggest pleasures are its street life and setting, admired from a tuk-tuk ride, from the narrow streets of Shela and Majengo, or simply by wandering around the atmospheric neighbourhoods.
Just a few of Kenya towns have such an amazing mix of both old and the new, makes Malindi a go-to destination for unhurried exploration and a place to get lost in.
