Kisite-Mpunguti Marine National Park, located off the coast of Kenya near the Tanzanian border, is a marine paradise known for its vibrant coral reefs and rich marine life. The park, established in 1978, covers an area of 39 square kilometers and is made up of four small islands surrounded by coral gardens teeming with colorful fish, sea turtles, dolphins, and occasional whale sharks. The underwater scenery is spectacular, with over 250 species of fish and numerous invertebrates, making it a popular destination for snorkeling, diving, and marine wildlife watching.

The islands themselves are home to various seabirds and are a vital nesting ground for species like the roseate tern. The park’s crystal-clear waters and extensive reef systems provide a perfect setting for underwater exploration, offering some of the best diving experiences in East Africa. The local Digo and Duruma communities also play a role in the conservation efforts, with eco-tourism providing a sustainable way to preserve the marine environment while benefiting the local economy. Visitors can enjoy boat trips, guided snorkeling tours, and learn about the importance of marine conservation.
