There’s always something about little-known places; the mystery, natural beauty, and their raw form. Bofa Beach could be described as this. The fact that this is a public beach with virtually no one in sight was mysterious; the pristine white sandy beaches and the cascading deep blue waters exposed the natural beauty associated with the Kenyan coast, but the fact that it has somehow managed to remain in its raw form, spared from the harmful effects of human civilization, is surprising.
Almost everyone from Distant Relatives Eco-lodge and Backpackers insisted on our visiting Bofa Beach. Initially, we did not understand what the excitement was about until the moment we laid our eyes on the beach. The sand was so white it literally hurt our eyes. Our disbelief was further compounded by the fact that we were virtually alone along the entire strip. It almost felt like we were in a fantasy world.
Here are the How’s, When’s, and Where’s:
- You can fly down to Malindi (or Mombasa) and drive to Kilifi
- The beach is approx. 10 minutes from Kilifi main stage (Hop on a Tuk-Tuk or Boda Boda)
