We visited Kenya Beach on a private tour and will definitely be back! The waters were crystal blue and the sands very white. A great place for snorkeling, relaxing and photo opportunities!

This beach and scenery is beautiful unfortunately got more sun burned than hoped as the parasols are not much protection. The beach area of cleaned up would make it even nicer.

Yes there are bathrooms and there is a snack bar but limited snacks. Should be ok for a lunch but don't plan for a big meal there. Kenepa and big Kip are the same. If you get a chance check out little Kip (Kenepa) about 15... More
