Robinson Island Tour

VSJ 110: ROBINSON ISLAND TOUR – Full Day

Highlights: This is a full day excursion in a four wheel drive jeep along Sabaki River to discover hippos and flamingos passing through little villages and along Indian Ocean sandy silver beach, salt factory and lunch based on crabs and fresh fish on Robinson island afternoon relaxing time on a wonderful beach.

Boating in the Indian OceanRobinson Island is about an hours drive north from the hotel, past Malindi, and you turn off as you reach the Salt Flats, where most of Africa's salt comes from. It is a rare sight with shallow ponds of salt water evaporating in the heat, then being scraped and shoveled, before being left in huge mounds to dry out.

Around fifteen minutes from the turn off, you will be transported with your iced chiller boxes across a small creek, and you are on Robinson Island. You visit for the restaurant which has no license so you bring your own drinks, and the restaurant itself has been built by beach combing. Large tables, big cushioned seating areas, sand floor, and no electricity.

The food is to die for with fresh crab, straight from the sea, as big as dinner plates. No claw crusher, just a heavy stick to smash the shell, this was followed by huge prawns, and then some barbecued fish. Finally, all in all, a lovely day completed by a swim off a totally deserted beach then back to your hotel in Malindi or Watamu.
