Mambrui Beach
Mambrui Beach is a wonderful, unspoilt, natural beach with only a few hotel complexes. Its outstanding features are the golden sand and the adjacent dunes, as well as the fact that you are also allowed to drive on the beach. For this reason it is worth taking a motorcycle taxi to get to the beach quickly. Mambrui Beach has a kind of magical atmosphere and is really beautiful to look at. A holiday here is just pure relaxation, but kite-boarders will also get their money’s worth here. The locals are very friendly and welcoming and watching the fishermen bringing in their catch of the day is especially recommended. At the nearby Galana River with a bit of luck you might also be able to observe flamingos, crocodiles and hippos.

Mambrui Beach – Golden sand and driving on the beach

The wonderful beach of Mambrui extends for about four kilometres north of the Galana River estuary. There are only a few hotel complexes here, but otherwise the beautiful beach is natural and completely unspoilt. Especially at low tide the fine sandy and very clean beach seems to stretch endlessly. Off season you will only see a few fishermen and hardly any holidaymakers at Mambrui Beach.

In some areas of the beach are small golden particles in the sand which shimmer delightfully in the sun. At the southern end is a small settlement which can be easily reached by car, or alternatively on foot through the dunes which is rather strenuous. The best option is to take one of the inexpensive motorbike taxis, as driving on the beach is actually permitted here.

Insider tip for kite-boarders and solitude seekers

What makes Mambrui Beach stand out from the other beaches in the area are the adjacent dunes which provide this beach with a somewhat surreal desert atmosphere. The spacious beach together with the dunes and fishing huts built into the hillside all help to create a beautiful setting. The fishermen will gladly show you their catch of the day and generally the locals here are even more friendly and welcoming than the Kenyans already are anyway.
It is not only solitude seekers who get their money’s worth here, as the northern end of Mambrui Beach is also a popular spot for kite-surfers who will find that the action centres around the Che Shale Hotel which offers hippy-style bungalows.

Flamingos and hippos - not far from Mambrui Beach

If all this is not enough for you, then the estuary of the Galana River is well worth a trip and with a bit of luck you might see crocodiles, pelicans and even hippos here.
