Malindi pier, looking back at the coastline while standing over it1
A concrete bridge spanning deep into the waters of the Indian ocean, from the road's side.

It is about 400 metres from end to end, though only half of this length is over the water.

Accessible from both the road and the beach, though the latter may mean getting wet as the staircase sits in the water.

It offers bird's eye views of the ocean as well as Malindi's coastline without having to get into a boat.

What to do thereFishing, swimming, or just take a stroll over the ocean and surrounding beach.

It usually is a bit windy, with weekends and holidays having more people visit the area.
