In 1952, Ian Pritchard sailed into Watamu and set up a drinking hole on the beach which he named Ocean Sports. The original boat he sailed in still stands prominently in the bar, along with trophies from fishing grounds near the resort. To this day, Ocean Sports remains popular with beach lovers, anglers and sportsmen alike.
There are 28 en-suite rooms, made up of doubles, twins and family rooms. All rooms have aircon, mosquito net and sea view. The Nest has 4 rooms, with 2 extra twin rooms interlinked, and a central shared living space; it can be taken as a whole for up to 12 people. The Beach House has 2 en-suite bedrooms, 2 bedrooms with shared bathroom, a large lounge, beachfront veranda and fully equipped kitchen, and is staffed by chef and housekeepers. The Beach Bar, known as the Locals’ Watering Hole, has a makuti thatched roof. The fully stocked Boat Bar, built around Ian Pritchard’s original boat, serves the veranda and deck. The restaurant, with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, specialises in seafood and pizza. Ocean Sports has a Sunday curry buffet, with live jazz band. Healing Zone has treatments and therapies such as shiatsu, aromatherapy and reflexology.
Aqua Ventures, an accredited PADI scuba diving company, is on site. A wealth of other activities can be booked here, including deep sea fishing, water-skiing, kayaking, quad biking, kite surfing and snorkelling. Trips to local attractions include Gede Ruins, Arabuko Sokoke Forest and Mida Creek.
