Malindi Marine Park was established in 1986. The reserve is enveloped by beautiful sand seashores that extend from the edge of Watamu, to the Vasco da Gama Pillar. The park is located south of Malindi town extending to Mida creek. It neighbors the Gede ruins and Arabuko Sokoke forest.
The park is endowed with magnificent resources such as fringing reefs, coral, sea grass, mangroves, mudflats, high fish diversity, marine mammals, turtles and shorebirds.
The fringing reef is close to shore and exposed during low tide, but drops gradually to a sea grass bed that descends precipitously to the deep Barracuda Channel.
Visitors can enjoy diving, snorkeling, skiing, deep sea fishing, windsurfing and kitesurfing.
