This APM image shows part of the coast of Kenya, along the Indian Ocean. Mombasa, the country’s second-largest city and a major port, can be observed near the upper right corner.

Being a coastal town, Mombasa is characterised by a flat topography. The town of Mombasa is centered on Mombasa Island, but extends to the mainland. The island is separated from the mainland by two creeks, Port Reitz in the south and Tudor Creek in the north.
