Wasini Island lies in southeast Kenya 3 kilometres off the coast of the Indian Ocean, 75 kilometres south of Mombasa, and 3 kilometres opposite the harbour of the village Shimoni. Outstanding coastal pearl in the tropical beach necklace that stretches south of Mombasa, unique with its faded white alleyways, Swahili fishing vibe and fat, mottled trees, this tiny island (it’s only 5km long) feels like a distant relative of Lamu and Zanzibar. It’s ripe with the ingredients required for a perfect backpacker beachside hideaway: it has that sit-under-a-tree-and-do-nothing-all-day vibe, a coastline licked with pockets of white sand and Kisite Marine National Park, the most gorgeous snorkelling reef on the coast.
