What to see and do

Mombasa Island and its surrounds offer varied tour attractions, from 16th century built Fort Jesus, old town area, dhow dinner cruise, fishing to snorkeling, diving at Kisite and Mombasa Marine Parks. The high gun turrets, battlements and underground passages of this 16th Century Fort were the centre of a historic struggle for control of the Kenya coast between the Portuguese army and the Shirazi Arabs. This war was waged around Mombasa over hundreds of years and countless battles, and the Fort stands as a testament to this tumultuous past.
