It has been pretty quiet here in Watamu as the rains have started and the tourists have stopped!

The Turtle bay Hotel is closed for 1 month due to renovations as they want to be a better place for the tourists.

They fenced the hotel temporarily to prevent strong wind from damages.

The Turtle bay beaches is still free from sea weeds creating a good place for a walk to the wishing rock.

Hi everyone

On 26th June I went on 2 days safari  to Tsavo East with 2 clients of Turtle Bay Hotel. We saw a group of lions seated only about 7metres from us.

On 29th June I went 3 days safari to Tsavo East and Amboseli with a family from Turtle bay Hotel. We saw the Mt Kilimanjaro very clearly and it was very lovely indeed.

We also went snorkelling in the marine park and then onto Mida Creek with some tourists of Turtle Bay Hotel and had a barbecue which included lobster, octopus soup, chicken, fish and coconut rice.

With the Watamu Marine Association helped by the school children we volunteer ourselves in making the beaches clean every week. Removing all the plastic materials from the beach thus making our environment clean. This also gives a room for the sea creatures and nesting turtles.

That's all for now.

The Ocean Sports Hotel was closed from 18th to 28th April. The beach is covered by a lot of sea weeds and the sea is very rough with strong currents and the fishing boats are not going out anymore for fishing. Some boats were docked at Captain Andy’s place at the creek for repairs waiting for the other fishing season.

Jambo

The building of the small bridge from Aquarius Hotel to the Lily Palm Beach Hotel is to reduce the harrassment of tourists by the boys who have no associations. It was also built for those tourists who want to be in peace. It has a nice appearance.

Also the building of the new hotel which borders the Mapango restaurant on the beach has a beautiful look.

The Watamu beaches are now becoming clean because of the strong currents which bury the seaweeds deep in the sand leaving the beaches clean like the beaches of Turtle Bay and Ocean Sports.

Nowadays at the beach of Ocean Sports are some boys who gives out surfing lessons to tourists at good prices. They have their Flag labelled F on the beach and a board showing the prices.
