The In Places of Mombassa Kenya

If you ever want to fully explore Mombasa, Kenya’s iconic coastal city’s urban lifestyle then here are some of the best spots to check out.

Malls in Mosamba Kenya

The modern upmarket streets of Nyali, a county within Mombasa City is the place to be if you’re looking to shop and relax at a mall. Both City Mall Nyali and Niyali Centre are upscale malls just like you’d find anywhere else in the world. They offer internationally recognised brands such as Domino’s Pizza, Bata, Giordano, Levi’s and Vivo. There’s also plenty of other local dining and shopping options to choose from. These would also be good places to use the ATM or convert your foreign exchange into local currency.


Mombasa has a steadily growing casino scene so if you’re in the mood to try your luck at a gaming table or slot machine while sipping on a cocktail and a few snacks then head down to The Senator Casino located in the heart of the Mombasa CBD. This lively casino featuring friendly and attentive staff, and rave reviews would make an ideal night out. Another close contender would be the Golden Key Casino located just outside Mombasa Island. The gambling scene here is just as good, but it’s also located right next to Tamarind Mombasa, one of Mombasa’s top rated fine dining restaurants. The restaurant mainly focuses on seafood and features an extensive menu along with a long list of fine wines. So, if you want to kill two birds with one stone then a combination of the two would be a good option.

Restaurants in Mombasa Kenya

If you’re looking for a chic café serving all day breakfasts, salads, burgers, exquisite coffee, or ice cream then Cafeserrie Mombasa is the place to be. Located on the ground floor of City Mall Nyali, this café is one of Mombasa’s top rated and the perfect place to stop over after a busy day of shopping. If the ambience is what you’re after, then try Ali Barbour’s Cave. This exotic restaurant is located within a beautifully lit natural rock cave overlooking the Indian Ocean and opened to the skies above and would be a true experience of a lifetime. It’s a very popular location so make sure you book in advance.

Bars & Clubs in Mombasa Kenya

If you’re in the mood for excellent night life, good music, good food, excellent drinks, and a great atmosphere then Tapas Cielo is the place to be. This is one of Mombasa’s best night clubs featuring world-class DJs and a pumping atmosphere. You could also try a rooftop bar that serves beautiful sunsets, excellent cocktails, and great music by heading up to Sheba Lounge, on the rooftop of City Mall. This club is popular among tourists. In contrast if you want to kick off those shoes and dance on the beach then Moonshine Beach Bar is where you should be. This is an excellent place to watch the sunset, then work your way up to a raving beach party as the night drags on into the early hours of the morning.
