Port of Abu Mombasa

Chief seaport of Kenya, on a bay of the Indian Ocean, just south of the equator.

Mombasa is the most important port of Kenya in 2006, and even a very important port for eastern Africa. Mombasa serves as a port for northeastern Tanzania and landlocked Uganda.

Old Mombasa, located on a small offshore island (16 sq km/6 sq mi), and a larger, more modern mainland metropolitan area, which is connected to the island by causeway, bridge, and ferries. Old Mombasa Harbour, on the eastern side of the island, handles mainly dhows and other small coastal trading vessels.

Kilindini, a modern deepwater harbor on the western side of the island, has extensive docks, shipyards, and sugar and petroleum refineries.

Mombasa has often been a port of call for United States Navy vessels.
