Mombasa is an island off the coast of Kenya, a tropical Island, with white sandy beaches and palm trees. Here are some things you can do to get your blood pumping. 1.Snorkelling/ Scuba-diving: Diani, also known as South Coast is the best place to experience this, because the water is more clear and has the most aquatic creatures, without the interference of coral. Most hotels do offer a Padi Certification, so can learn how to scuba dive when you are on holiday. The hotel can organize, a dive, but they are also boats located on the beach that aren't owned by the hotels but by individuals and they can take you for a snorkel, feed the fish on the coral, and sometimes during low tide a sandbank appears. Since these boats are business outside the hotel they do charge between $50-$75 per person.
