Turtle Bay Beach Club is located adjacent to one of the most unspoilt underwater reserves in the world: Watamu National Marine Park, the first to be set up not only in Kenya but the first in Africa. As fishing is not allowed within the park, it has become a safe haven and breeding ground for numerous species of fish. On the other side of the reef within the park reserves it is not unusual to encounter Manta Rays, Whale-Sharks, Dolphins and Turtles. The Diving School is run by professionals who are proud of safety standards that are maintained and diving is conducted in small groups of 4 divers per guide in order to ensure safety is kept at the highest level..
