Its main economic activities are tourism and fishing. Looks out over the ocean and with soft white sand and blessed by a soft breeze. Whichever you choose, Watamu does make a good base for explorations between Malindi and Kilif. Malindi-Watamu Biosphere Reserve is located on the coast of Kenya about 100 km north of Mombasa.
