Jacaranda Beach Resort is a large property with great facilities just 7 kilometres from Watamu and 13 kilometres (20 minutes) from Malindi on Kenya’s Coast. It has an idyllic setting right in the heart of the enchanting Watamu Marine Reserve. Here, the beaches have fine white sand and at low tide there are fascinating coral atolls to explore.
Jacaranda’s 150 metre beach area is set within a larger 1200-metre-long stretch of coastline with soft white sand and lush palm trees.
Guests can spend time simply relaxing on the beach or by the pool or they can explore the footpaths and trails within the lush tropical vegetation of the surrounding area. The resort provides the ideal retreat at which to rest after a Kenya safari tour.
