Do you see those tiny islands in the background? You can easily reach them at low tide, simply walking, and so to discover the sealife populating this area. p.s. do not forget the camera :-).
Anybody knows what’s the real name of this fish? Uhm .. no, I don’t think “Nemo” is his real name …
This is the sunbed on the private roof-terrace of our Top Tower Room, on the top of the observation tower. Full of activity, uh? 🙂
p.s. do you know this tower is the tallest building in Watamu?
Do you see the beauty of Watamu? When it’s low tide you can simply walk to reach the tiny islands facing the coast, leaving directly from the shores and from your hotel. Low tide creates several ponds only a few feet deep, full of sealife, and you can enjoy it even when you’re not .. ergh .. ehm […]
