Golden Beach – Buntwani

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 November and April.
