Watamu Marine National Park and Reserve
In terms of extraordinary natural beauty, the Watamu marine national park and reserve is among the best-kept secrets in the world. One of the justifications for visiting this natural excellence is the park and coral gardens. It is located in Watamu, making It a perfect destination for honeymooners who want underwater adventure and escape from the sun. While snorkelling inside the main reef, it is virtually impossible not to encounter at least a few dozen marine species. Fishes like parrotfish, angelfish, groupers, filefish, lionfish, and snappers are just a few of the visible species in this magnificent, vibrantly coloured underwater world. When in the area, we recommend you stay at the Temple Point Resort, just a minute’s walk away from the Reserve. The property offers traditional Swahili rooms, where you can enjoy the views of the Indian Ocean, Mida Creeks and lush green gardens from its patios or balconies. Amenities such as spas, private beaches and pools, shops, restaurants and bars are all available to spice up your honeymoon.
Ah yes, Manda island! An island in the Lamu Archipelago with endless idyllic beaches where the sound of the Indian Ocean lapping against the shore is audible and soothing.

Its charming structures and immaculate white sand beaches make it the perfect location for honeymooners to unwind and appreciate each other’s company. If you want something extra adventurous, start your exploration with the ruins of Takwa and Manda while basking in the calming air of the 1600s.
