The first marina in Kenya is under construction, with slips to accommodate 88 boats, as investors hope to lure tourists to the coastal town of Mombasa.

The development also includes high-end apartments and a hotel, according to the Business Daily of Africa newspaper.

The marina will be the third in Africa. The others are on the east coast — one in South Africa and one in Egypt. Kenya has no facility to accommodate yachts. When they visit the coast, they remain in high seas and the guests have to use other means to access the mainland, the newspaper said.
