Awesome, Relaxing way to support the community & environment!
Dec 2019
My boyfriend and I loved our visit to the Boardwalk! Really admire how the community has conserved this precious habitat and given the gift of a unique experience to visitors. The entrance/guide fee goes back into the community in the form of a fund that they can use for various projects and needs. This is a special activity that you'll feel good about doing.

We were staying on Wasini so came here for a walk around sunset. The guide station was closed but a group of boys from the village who were playing nearby became our "stand-in guides". They were hilarious and so fun to walk with. Later we paid them each about 20 KSh for their time. The nearby village was safe and people were welcoming and helpful. Cool to walk through on the way to the boardwalk.

The coral garden is mysterious and beautiful. So wild to be walking amongst fossilized reefs, something I had never done before. The mangroves were gorgeous - they're such an important ecosystem and happy to see them protected like this. The boardwalk itself was in pretty good condition with only a few damaged boards.

Definitely recommend to anyone coming to Wasini!

AN AWESOME BOARDWALK & BEAUTIFUL MANGROVE FOREST

I have visited the coral garden three times but this last time was the best. It was on high tide and the water had covered the whole garden making it more fun to walk on the boardwalk through the mangrove trees.

Nice place

Nice place to see for both the rocks of corral rocks left in the middle of nowhere, and for the walk on wooden platform offering an insight view of the mangrove.

Coral garden is nice

We were laate so the boardwalk was closed. Also, it was very dry and might be nicer when there is a big tide.

Perfect photo backdrop!

This was the last stop for our Wasini tour. Best visited near dusk to capture the sunset. The mangrove forest provides a very good background for pictures. Comfortable shoes are a must! The boardwalk was under repair when we visited and some parts required jumping over.
Get the guide to show you how to plant a mangrove. Requires a bit of tact :)

Beautiful, surprising site

This is just a natural site with a boardwalk, but if you go to Wasini, you should definitely visit it (we went two or three times during our 4-night stay). It is unique, beautiful at sunset and when the water comes (twice a month at high tide I believe).

i felt Exploited
Jun 2015 • Couples
I would first like to say that the tour was good of the Wasini Island but i saw no dolphins and we only snorkeled for about 30 minutes. The guides on the boat were great and very knowlegable about the island. Once we reached the island for lunch we were put high on the ridge for lunch like gods while the villagers watch as we ate our first class meals of fish and crab(i paid extra for the lobster and calamari) which by the way was excellent but don't get fooled because drink are not part of the cost of the meal. Next we walked thru village and for some reason me and the rest of the visitors just really felt like were so exploited as westerners. Everywhere u went they wanted money. Finally got to the Coral garden and was told it was 250 Kenyan schilling to enter which was not the case we all paid all exclusive prices for the tour. Finally after a 5 minute conversation with the guide we entered and i will say is was really cool. After the tour of the coral gardens we were lead back to the boats and headed off. All in all it was ok but like i said i felt exploited as a westerner and seemed like the 100$ i paid that said all exclusive was not the case.

Gorgeous Coral Gardens

I was not expecting the Coral Gardens to be this interesting! They were really great for photos and it felt very strange walking through them. I would definitely recommend going for an hour or so. Support the women's groups selling things nearby as well, please!
