There are various activities on offer ranging from nature trails to fishing and golf.

Mombasa South Coast
To get to " South Coast" from Mombasa, one takes the Ferry across a narrow channel, usually a colourful experience owing to lots of noise and bustle of the swahili people as they go about their daily business.

South Coast is generally a quiter and cleaner stretch of coastline than the North coast. Beaches include Diani, Tiwi and Gazi, leading upto the Pemba area. Accommodation varies from hotels to cottages.

Its interior comprises of torture rooms and prison cells where slaves were kept in captivity before being traded. Weapons such as canons, which were used to defend the fort from invading foreigners as well as rioting locals, can be seen both inside and outside of the fort.
