Among the projects that the Ministry of Tourism plans to launch the appeal and to improve the services of the Kenyan north coast, there is also a paved road that would unite Malindi to Watamu, via the Marine Park and Mayungu.
Stretch of road has been discussed for years and which affects not only the fastest connection between the two resorts, but also the development of the area and Mayungu Chembe Kibabache, better known as "Sardegna 2".
One of the most beautiful beach areas of the entire African coast of the Indian Ocean.
"That road will be paved, word of Najib Balala - said the Minister of Tourism during his meeting with the tourism entrepreneurs and operators in Malindi - I'm looking for the funds to build it in a short time. In six months we will meet here and hope to announce news about it. "
According Balala that stretch of road is very important to improve connections and to differentiate the tourist traffic from ordinary traffic of Malindi.
"Just as Mombasa is now the city of tuk tuk (there are 12,000, a little 'too much) and the traffic begins to be heavy at least 12 hours a day, Malindi is becoming the town of Boda Boda, that we must regulate. But we must nip in the bud the increased traffic at a tourist resort. There also will work with other proposals. "
Everything is ready in Casuarina to asphalt the first kilometre of the road that will take you to the fishing village of Mayungu and from there, shortly afterwards, through the Malaika Beach resort, Jacaranda Bay and finally Watamu.
The diversion signs have been removed in recent days, the first section (2km) of the road that connects Casuarina to the fishing village of Mayungu, is permanently transitable 24 hours a day.
Mayungu will be the next frontier of coastal tourism. The fishermen's village between Malindi and Watamu is evolving, among the latest land and property sales (even Nairobi's prominent figures have purchased plots or existing homes) and the resolution of many...
This time it looks like we are through.
The Kilifi government gave the contract to a Chinese company for the first work of maintenance of the Mayungu road, which leads from Casuarina in Watamu.
