Kilifi County is a county of Kenya. It was formed in 2010 as a result of a merger of Kilifi District and Malindi District. Its capital is Kilifi and its largest town is Malindi. The county has a population of 1,109,735. It covers an area of 12,245.90 km2 (4,728.17 sq mi). Kilifi county forms a constituency when electing a senator and a woman representatives of Kenyan Parliament and Senate. It also elects its own governor who is the county leader.

The county is represented in parliament by seven legislators, one woman representative and a Senator in senate. The county also has 35 ward representatives.

The county is located north and northeast of Mombasa. Kilifi has fewer tourists than Mombasa Country, but there are some tourists beaches in Kikambala, Watuma, Malindi and Kilifi.

Watamu is a small town located approximately 105 km north of Mombasa and about 15 km south of Malindi on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya. It lies on a small headland, between the Blue Lagoon and Watamu Bay. Its main economic activities are tourism and fishing. The town has a population of around 1,900 and it is part of the Kilifi County.

The shoreline in the area features white sand beaches and offshore coral formations arranged in different bays and beaches: Garoda Beach, Turtle Bay, Blue Lagoon Bay, Watamu Bay, Ocean breeze, and Kanani reef and Jacaranda beach. They are protected as part of the Watamu Marine National Park. The Marine Park is considered one of the best snorkelling and diving areas on the coast of East Africa. It is also rated the third best beach area in Africa, for it crystal clear water and silver sand beaches. In order to assist the managing authorities - namely Kenyan Wildlife Service - in protecting the Park, local community groups, the tourist sector and environmental groups have formed a unique organisation, Watamu Marine Association. Members of this group are Turtle Bay, Hemingways, Ocean Sports, Arocha Kenya, and Lonno Lodge Mida Community Conservation group, Watamu Boat Operators, Safari Sellers and women's group.

Watamu is home to the Bajuni people; who trace their descend to the intermarriages between the local Giriama People and the Arab traders. As at now, various tribes from inland Kenya such as the Luo, Kisii, Kikuyu, Kamba, kalenjin, Luhyas have all immigrated to the area to work in the Hotel industry. this movement has led to an increase in the population of the Watamu as earlier stated.

A newly discovered species of the largest spitting cobra in the world was recently (2007) - discovered in Watamu!
