I'm an ex-hotelier, marketer and travel professional who absolutely loves Malindi and vouch for everyone to visit at least once. The people in Malindi are happy (its contagious), culture is vibrant and beaches super relaxed. I'm a mother of three and we frequently escape the hustle and bustle of the city to relax and recharge in Malindi!
