The best beach in Watamu is the home to this base, which offers suitably macho pursuits given the name of the place.

The coast of Kenya jut north of Mombasa has something of an Italian flavor; the beaches decked with designer hotels and designer bodies topping up their tans. The region is well known for its sport fishing and you’re close by to Tsavo National Park.
