Fodor's Expert Review Wasini Island

Southern Beaches of Mombasa Island

Take a walk to the ancient Arab settlement near the modern village of Wasini Island. Here you'll find the ruins of 18th- and 19th-century houses and a Muslim pillar tomb inset with Chinese porcelain. If you're into snorkeling or diving, make this a definite stop. You can book an excursion or hire a motorboat from Ksh 1,500 to Ksh 3,000 one-way. Remember to dress respectfully when walking around the village.
