Summary of KEMYD

Malindi (Port Code:KEMYD) has traditionally been a port city at the mouth of the Sabaki River, lying on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya. Malindi Port is located on the northern side, just 120 km away in Mombasa town. It has a dock that is in good condition however due to accretion, the breaking area has drifted to the fish landing part of the port. Its anchorage is 11 m to 12.2 m and it can accommodate vessels measuring up to 500 m. This port exports cotton, sim-sim and copra.
It also serves the fish industry and has scope for expansion that is why the KPA is working to revamp the dock to make it an efficient fishing port and also a tourist spot, as the Malindi town is a popular destination.
Currently, the fish jetty handles about 1,250 MT annually and sees 8000 tourist vessels. KPA has also decided on expanding this port by acquiring an additional 2500 sqm of land area to construct administrative and office buildings, cold storage for fish, ice facility, fuel services, ship repair etc.
