DIVING:Turtle Bay Beach Club is located adjacent to one of the most unspoilt underwater reserves in the world: Watamu National Marine Park, the first to be set up not only in Kenya but the first in Africa. As fishing is not allowed within the park, it has become a safe haven and breeding ground for numerous species of fish. On the other side of the reef within the park reserves it is not unusual to encounter Manta Rays, Whale-Sharks, Dolphins and Turtles. The Diving School is run by professionals who are proud of safety standards that are maintained and diving is conducted in small groups of 4 divers per guide in order to ensure safety is kept at the highest level.
The Dive Centre is situated within the Hotel grounds with immediate beach access to the Watamu Marine Park.
BIRDS: The Watamu–Malindi area is extremely rich for it’s diversity of birds. Over 450 species have been recorded within 30 km of Watamu, including some rare and little-known species that have made the area known world-wide amongst birders and ornithologists. Since many species of birds are restricted to particular habitat types, a major reason for this diversity around Watamu and Malindi is the wide range of habitats that occur within the area.
