  • Electricity Supply - Watuma Bay

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not really a danger, but be aware that the electricity supply can be a bit erratic with the occassional blackout. When we were there none lasted longer than 5-10 minutes. If it happens at night take the opportunity to look at the stars as they are much clearer than you see at home where we have so much light pollution!

    Marine Park Fees

    by PaulyMSU1 Written Sep 25, 2006

    Be careful when you're on the beach. The whole coastline of Watamu is considered part of the marine park, whether you're at a public beach or a hotel right on the beach. Because of this, there are park officials (who may not be dressed as such) who enforce the rule that says: swimming and being in the water is fair game and free until you put on some sort of mask to see the marine-life, it costs money to enter the water with a mask on. So don't be suprised to have to pay a man once you return to the beach.
