So what do holidays in Malindi offer you? Well, this historic town in Kenya consists of modern shopping parades, bygone times, local heritage and of course, gorgeous seaside locations.
Thought to be founded by the Arabs in the early thirteenth century, Malindi is now a mixed bag of culture, history and economy. Shopping here reflects the native influences and you can buy anything from Swahili furniture, wooden carvings, brightly coloured fabrics and even Italian style leather goods.
If you're keen to sample the local cuisine, there are a number of small bars and restaurants to choose from. As you're so near to the coast, seafood is widely available although international dishes are also on offer.
Don't forget holidays in Malindi also mean heavenly beaches fringed with swaying palm trees. The warm blue waters are home to a variety of exotic corals and if you fancy a spot of snorkelling, you're likely to see a multitude of colourful fishes weaving their way through the reef.
Where can you stay? The Turtle Bay Beach Club, which is based within the Malindi Marine National Park, is well worth a visit. The facilities here are fabulous so you'll never run out of things to do. Try your hand at windsurfing or scuba diving or hire a bicycle and explore the ten acres of gardens that surround you.
