Mambrui Beach (Che Shale)
B8 Malindi Kilifi County
A short drive north of Malindi on the coastal highway, Mambrui flies
underneath the beach radar, a getaway for those who know the coast well.
Constant offshore winds make it another kitesurfing heaven, but Mambui also lends itself to deep-sea fishing, snorkeling at
Malindi Marine Park, long strolls along virtually empty beaches, and quick jaunts to nearby Tsavo East National Park.
There's a few modest hotels in town, but the
place to stay is Che Shale on the cape. Established in the 1970s and still run by the Aniere family, the stylish seaside escapes couples, diehard kitesurfers and those who just want to get away from it all.
