Gede Ruins

  • The mysterious ruins of Gedi

Located near Watamu, about 16 kilometers south of Malindi, Gede was one of the largest and most prosperous towns along the East African coast — until it was abandoned at the beginning of the 17th century. The earliest evidence for occupation at Gede is a grave marker that has been radiocarbon dated to between 1041 to 1278, placing the original settlement of the site sometime in the eleventh or early twelfth century.
