Kilifi – About

Kilifi Beach1Kilifi is a place to go when you want to get away from it all! Kilifi is a sleepy resort town about a 65km drive north of Mombasa. The town sits on Kilifi Creek, a deep water creek popular with sailors. The tourist attraction to Kilifi, apart from it’s quiet and peaceful existence, is both the watersports in the creek and the beautiful white powdery sands of Bofa Beach. For families with kids of 13 and under, there is an excellent ‘kids outdoor camp’ full of fun, in the holiday season; a great opportunity for parents to have their kids entertained whilst enjoying their own company for a few days holiday.
