Where you’ll be

Mombasa, Mombasa County, Kenya

I will be pleased to advise you on sight seeing and shopping near the facility. A Go-cart track is located 300 meters from the property. City Mall and Nyali Center are only 4 kms away with plenty of shops, incl. NAIVAS supermarkets, popular coffee shops and eateries, french bakery, butchery, banks, travel offices and exchange bureaus etc. Haller Park, a reclaimed quarry with plenty of wildlife is just opposite City Mall while Mamba Village Crocodile farm, Bombolulu crafts workshop and cultural centre are 7 kms from Cowire Shell. Mombasa Old Town with its enchanting historic alleys, famous carved doors and overhanging verandahs and Fort Jesus are a must for any traveler and about 15 kms from the studio. I can advise you on reliable tour operators who offer affordable safaris to the Tsavo National Park and the world famous Masai Mara or Amboseli parks.
You can book dow trips and enjoy seafood at the Mtwapa Creek just 2 kms from the property.
Sea Heavan, a great sea food restaurant is only 2 kms away from Cowrie Shell and during low tide you can actually take a 10 min. walk along the beach to reach it. The onsite restaurant and bar, Suli Suli offers a wide range of quality food at reasonable prices.

During your stay

Cowrie Shell Beach apartments consists of 86 apartments and studios, located at the beach front north of Neptune Beach Hotel. The apartments are owned by individuals but managed by a professional company that manages the reception, gym, pool, common area as well as cleaning and laundry. The beach is quiet with few tourists since the larger hotels are located south of the property. You can enjoy swimming in the warm Indian ocean throughout the year. The reef with exotic coral and a large variety of fish is just about 500 meters away and you can enjoy snorkeling with a glass bottom boat. I do not live on the property but can be reached on phone.
