How was your wedding? Or, probably, how do you expect it will be? Wonderful, for sure. Stunning, moving, incredible, and full of joy and love. And exhausting :-), very exhausting, right? Well, we have put together the perfect solution for the two of you, combining the best relaxing activities Watamu has to offer. Yes, because Watamu is not only one of the most celebrated beaches of East Africa for water sports, but first and above all it still is a quiet village on the coast of Kenya.
And The Charming Lonno Lodge is no exception, after all there must be a reason if our guest’s preferred tour is the “Do Nothing Tour“! Our Charming Beach Honeymoon is meant to let you slow down for five days, to cuddle each other, to spend time together, and to rest from the rush of your wedding. We carefully choose the most enchanting but relaxing experiences you can live in Watamu, including looking for dolphins or whales depending on season, cruising on a traditional dhow, canoeing, protecting turtles, and much more. Explore this page, everything you see is included in our Charming Beach Honeymoon package.
p.s. if after 5 days of full relax you’re up to for some extra day for a Safari in the Tsavo East (the largest national park in Kenya), please get in touch with us, we have that covered too!
A full day of your honeymoon will be reserved to a romantic cruise on a traditional dhow to look for dolphins or whales (depending on the season) or simply snorkeling or suntanning on a remote beach. Lunch is served on-board and the whole dhow will be just for the two of you, guaranteed!!
We’ll take you to visit the Watamu Turtle Watch, who works hard to ensure the future of sea turtles in the Watamu area. You’ll learn how they monitor and protect nesting female sea turtles, their nests and their hatchlings, and how they keep turtles that are not fit enough to be released straight away. They bring them back to their specialist turtle rehabilitation centre, for medication and care until such time as they are strong enough to survive in the wild.
During your visit you’ll also adopt a turtle nest: you’ll receive a certificate of your adoption and Watamu Turtle Watch will notify you when your nest has hatched and how many hatchlings there were.
Mida Creek is an important feeding and development area for juvenile green and hawksbill sea turtles, as well as a feeding and resting ground for large populations of around 65 species of aquatic birds.
Very famous is the Mida Creek Boardwalk & Bird Hide. This is kind of a rope bridge construction leading to a wooden shelter from where you can relax with amazing views and perfectly observe the birdlife of Mida Creek.
And you’ll also be exploring the Mida Creek on board a traditional wooden canoe, guided by a local expert guide, to end your day at the Crab Shack for dinner.
During your honeymoon in Watamu you will enjoy the renowned Lonno Lodge cuisine, with service at the table even for breakfast. Your honeymoon will include a Swahili dinner with local Kenya specialities, a candlelight dinner and also a dinner at the famous Crab Shack.
