The Golden Beach – Buntwani
This beach spans 8 kilometers towards the river Sabaki that spills into the Indian Ocean. This affects swimming during low tides. This means the waters are a bit murky compared to the lower section near the Vasco Da Gama pillar. Following heavy rains, the water turns reddish-brown brought about by the iron-rich soils from Tsavo East Park. This phenomenon is most common in the months of November and April.
This beach is home to the phenomenon Malindi Pier, one of the longest piers in EAST AFRICA.
