Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park, located on the south coast of Mombasa near Wasini Island, is a protected marine haven encompassing coral reefs and four small islands. This park combines the Kisite Marine National Park and Mpunguti Marine National Reserve, covering a significant area. It features diverse wildlife, including over 45 coral types and 360 fish species, such as grouper, pufferfish, and dolphins.

Humpback whales and whale sharks are also occasionally spotted. The coral gardens beneath the water’s surface invite visitors to explore through snorkeling and scuba diving year-round. The Wasini Island mangrove boardwalk, managed by the Wasini Women Group, offers a chance to learn about the ecosystem. Additionally, visitors can shop for souvenirs and enjoy a seafood lunch at Charlie Claws Restaurant.

Afterward, exploring the Shimoni Slave Cave on the mainland reveals a haunting historical testament to the African slave trade, with chains and metal studs still lining the cave walls where captives were held before being transported to various parts of the world.
