Fodor's Review

A few miles off the coast, this 39-square-km national park is known for its beautiful coral gardens. Staghorn, brain, mushroom, and pencil are just a few of the ore than 40 varieties of coral that have been identified. And more than 250 species of fish have been spotted feeding around the reef, including butterfly fish, parrot fish, and angelfish. Humpback dolphins are a common sight, as are big schools of bonitos and frigate mackerels. The entire protected area, just past Wasini Island, is in shallow water and can be easily reached by motor boat or dhow. You can arrange a day-trip from boat captains at the dock in Shimoni.
