Flights & getting there

Watamu is about a two-hour drive north of Mombasa and about a 40-minute drive south of Malindi. Matatus (minibuses) run regularly between the three destinations. Heading north, they depart from the matatu stand in Watamu village; southbound vans leave from the matatu stop near the Gede ruins. Matatus to Malindi charge KSh150; to Mombasa they charge KSh500 to KSh700.
