Beach Hotel

Nyali Beach Hotel, Mombasa Kenya

This hotel was a family favorite for many years. Now, 60 years on, I wonder if it still exists.

I found this old postcard in a pile of old correspondence which my mother had saved and then returned to me 20 years ago. I in turn saved that old correspondence and am just looking through these treasures now. Someone along the way had clipped the postcards – maybe a stamp collector? This particular card was postmarked Nairobi December 1966.

I googled to find a plethora of beach hotels in the Mombasa/Nyali area. The beach hotel scene has expanded (=exploded)..The quaint old hotel scene is long gone. I am glad I knew it when – long ago.
