Wasini Island
The name “wasini mpunguti” came from the early inhabitants who originally were the Chinese who were short Chinese,  hence the name wasini mpunguti which to the locals means short Chinese. The island has only footpaths of sharp old coral or sand. There are no cars, carts or bicycles. Cargo is transported by foot or by a wheelbarrow with a solid tyre. Transport is over the paths, or via the beaches, mainly consisting of coral and only passable with low tide, or by boat over the sea. Here visitors snorkel and dive between the coral around this tiny sand island which is totally inundated during high tide. Also during the ride you might be able to spot dolphins and other beautiful aquatic animals.


Shimon Cave
The awesome coral caves of Shimoni in Kwale County are a living testimony of the dark days of slavery on the East African coast. These caves are where slaves were supposedly kept before being loaded onto boats and shipped to Zanzibar. Actual evidence that slaves were kept here consists solely of iron rings in the rocks, but as piles of empty votive rosewater bottles indicate, the site definitely has significance for locals.
