Gedi is home to the Gedi Ruins. The town is 4 km from Watamu. The ruins consist of a Swahili-Arab town and are one of the main historical monuments on the Kenyan coast. They cover a large area, but nobody knows exactly what town they were, as there is no mention of the town in any of the historical Arab or Portuguese chronicles of that time. The is though to have been founded in the 13th century, but in the 17th or early 18th century it was suddenly abandoned for unknown reasons.

You can get to the ruins by any matatu (minibus) that runs between Malindi and Mombasa. Just get off at Gedi.
