Rii Taa Isle

Rii Taa, a white sand island, is definitely one of the most beautiful parts of the Nagekeo district.
You can reach Rii Taa within one hour by chartering a traditional boat operated by locals from the port of Marapokot, the gathering place of the local fishermen with their traditional boats.

Sitting on the wooden deck of the boat, breathtaking sea views indulge the senses with blue aquamarine painted on the sea. Nature’s charm welcomes you to this small, pristine stretch of pure, white sand beach that resembles a narrow semi-circle of no more than fifteen meters in width.

Silence truly dominates in Rii Taa. Only the sounds of waves colliding with the wooden boat and the cries of seagulls accompany you while the soft, white sand caresses your bare feet. The seagulls in a contrasting background of ocean blue and bright white sand, as well as the different sized sea urchin shells, make very aesthetic motifs for photos.

If this is all getting too quiet and minimalist for you, grab your snorkel and goggles and dip into the lively underwater world of Rii Taa.
