Unspoiled, beautiful and sun kissed, the Kisite Marine Park was established to protect the scenic islands and special habitats of a wide range of endemic marine animals and breeding migratory birds. It lies in the coral gardens south of Wasini Island and encompasses three small coral rag forest islands, each with considerable areas of fringing reef. Kisite is one of the most rewarding snorkelling locations at the coast. Visitors can also enjoy bird watching, diving and of course, sunbathing.
It is safe to swim in the sea and swimming pools, but it is not recommended to do so in lakes, rivers and open reservoirs as they may be infested with bilharzia parasites. Drinking water from these places is not advisable. Tap water is safe to drink unless otherwise indicated.
With a bit of luck, humpback whales can be spotted during their migration time from July to October. Tours to Kisite Mpunguti Marine Natioanl Park and Wasini Island are offered where participants have plenty of time to watch the pods of resident dolphins, for snorkeling in the coral reef, or to even make a scuba dive.
