Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park is “home of the dolphins”. The park covers an area of 28sq Km and is considered to be the most magnificent of all Kenyan marine parks. The unspoiled, beautiful and sun kissed park lies in the coral gardens south of Wasini island and encompasses four small coral rag forest islands. The surrounding waters have well developed coral gardens and a large variety of fish.
