With warm calm waters of the Indian Ocean and great weather all year round, the coast of East Africa will offer an idyllic vacation that is sure to recharge your batteries! A coral reef shelters the beach across the length of the East African coastline. This makes it particularly safe from sharks, marine stingers and other marine hazards. It also ensures that the waters at the beach are relatively calm throughout the year. The beach is characterized by white sandy beach and warm waters near the shore, dotted with towering palm trees and warm humid weather.
