After I tested riding on a camel, few years ago in the Sahara of Tunisia, such kind of "fun" is out of my interests. But the truth is, the desert terrain is much more demanding and uncomfortable for ride.
Anyhow, the one who want it can ride the camel along the beach but only under the guidance of a camel owner. Lovers of adrenaline such riding certainly will not like. Perhaps it is a reason why on the camel back mostly can be seen just little kids.
Actually, Bamburi is a small village situated offshore, north of Malindi highway and close to Cement factory. On the other side, Bamburi Beach is a strip of pale sand backed by palm trees and lipped by shallow turquoise water, kept calm by an long offshore reef.
As far as I know, it is the only completely public beach in the complex of Nyali-Bamburi-Shanzu riviera. The section of Pirathes Beach is in particularly popular among the locals, probably because its shallow water because most of the Kenyans aren't able to swim at all.
During a day, especially on weekends, it could be overcrowded by the locals who "swim" or just walking on a sand, curious but friendly looking at the tourists passing by. In the evenings and over nights it becoming place for a parties, with lots drinking and dancing.
