The Islands popularly known as “Sardegna Due” an Italian term meaning (Sardegna two) attract thousands of tourists each year due to its fine scenery and good environment for tourists to relax. Italians have an island similar to that in Malindi and therefore named it the second after their own in 1993 when they started touring Kenya. The Island is located seven kilometers from the Malindi Marine park. The visibility or appearance of the island depends on the tides and day of the month, it can be seen during low tides and disappears once high tides roll in.Its a prestigious attraction that is famous worldwide and is normally described as the magic island because it consists of unknown number of islands with unique pure white sand that is darling of many tourists. They rate it as the second best island worldwide after Sardegna 1 island in Italy and is visited by prominent personalities such as Italian Billionaire Flavio Briatore, Former Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi and other key international celebrities who tour the area. You will have a chance to hold starfish as they are found in plenty, and capture the serenity of the island. Once you dock, you will be allowed to get off the boat and deep yourself into the crystal clear waters and white clean sand under Neath. The captain and his crew will start grilling fresh sea food right there on the island with quite a variety like prawns, lobster and Barracuda fish accompanied with rice and curry.
Lunch will be served on the boat.
After Lunch you can choose to swim on the shallow calm waters before the tides come back and swallow the island.
If the tide is high the captain will then have another option of docking on the beautiful shore or the serene Safina beach bar and grill, and you can just relax on the sun beds while enjoying the sea breeze and the beautiful view of the island from a distance.
