Mombasa Residential areas
Mombasa Island
Kizingo: Considered the prime residential area of Mombasa. The State House & Mombasa Golf Club are in Kizingo. The Aga Khan Academy is an independent school in Kizingo.

Kibokoni: Part of Old Town with Swahili architecture. Fort Jesus is in Kibokoni.

Makadara: Part of Old Town consisting of a high number of descendants of Baluchi soldiers who settled within this area before it developed into a town. The name is derived from the Arabic word Qadr-ur-Rahman meaning fate of God.

Ganjoni: Primarily residential. Middle class.

Tudor: Another middle class residential area with homes and shops.

Outside Mombasa Island

Nyali: is a prime and up-market residential area, it is on the mainland north of the island & is linked by the Nyali bridge. It has numerous beach front hotels in the area known as the "North Coast". Nyali has two distinct sections - the posh Old Nyali and the upcoming New Nyali. For many residents, Nyali has now become a self-contained residential area, with a multiplex cinema, shopping malls, banks, schools and post offices. This often eliminates the need for residents to cross the bridge and to go into the congested Mombasa city center. Nyali is home for the Nyali Cinemax complex, the Nyali Golf Club, and some of the most prestigious academic institutions of the Coast Province, examples of which include Oshwal Academy and the Mombasa Academy (both fully-fledged primary and secondary schools) and Tiny Tots Kindergarten (Nyali's oldest and prominent educational institution specialising in early childhood development and education). There is also a police station, the Nyali police station.

Likoni: is a lower class area connected to Mombasa Proper by a ferry. It is south of Mombasa Island and made up Digos - a native tribe (with some of them being reffered to as Swahilis) and other  non-Swahili tribes. It is in this area that you will find the cheapest stone and mortar housing in Mombasa with a single room going for as low as KSh. 600 per month and as such Likoni is mostly inhabited by casual worlkers who provide labour for industries in town (Shimanzi).

Magongo: is an outlying township 10 minutes northwest of Mombasa Island, situated on the Mombasa - Nairobi highway. This fringe community lacks any effective electricity, water or sewer systems, with a general lack of infrastructure. Poverty, lack of sanitation, and unemployment continue to be the greatest issues for the Mikindani Township, which have ensured low health and safety standards for its residents. Poor, lower class housing is widespread, ranging from simple stone, two storey structures to mud and earth homes fitted with corrugated iron roofs. Much of the community works outside of the township, within Mombasa Island itself as there is a lack of employment and industry. There are number of small health clinics, shops, and a few public primary schools: Nazarene primary is one school, which is known in particular as being staffed by a revolving volunteer teacher base from Western, and predominately English speaking nations. This small town that serves as a link between the city and Moi International Airport. Magongo is also home to the Akamba Handicraft Cooperative

Mikindani and Miritini: These are outlying townships on the mainland along the Nairobi road. They are built in the heavy industrial sections of Changamwe and mainly accommodate the working class who either work in the industries, the town centre on the Island and the Port at Kilindini harbor.

Changamwe: Industrial

Bamburi: also an outlying township (fifteen minutes drive) on the way to the town of Malindi. This is area where a cement factory Bamburi is located. Other notable features in the area are Mijikenda public beach and Haller Park, a wildlife conservatory.

Diani Beach a beach resort situated over the Likoni Ferry on the South Coast of Mombasa about 1 hour from the airport. This area has numerous hotels,resorts and private upmarket exclusive cottages and 'boutique' hotels, catering for a wide diversity of tastes. Most of the hotels provide a wide choice or activities from daily animation team games to deep sea fishing and scuba diving. Staying in the smaller more exclusive accommodations - allows the tourist to experience this beautiful beach at its best. From this location day trips to Mombasa, Nature reserves, the coral reef, Wasini Island and Charli Island and a wide variety of both natural and cultural interest are easily accessible.
