Coast Province of Kenya.

The Coast Province of Kenya (Kiswahili: Mkoa wa Pwani) was one of 8 Provinces of Kenya before the 2010 constitution did away with provinces and organised the country into 47 counties. Its neighbours were North Eastern to the north, Tanzania to the south, Indian Ocean to both the east and south. The provincial headquarters was Mombasa Town.

There were 7 legally created districts in this province. These were Kwale, Kilifi, Tana River, Lamu, and Taita-Taveta.

After the 2010 constitution, the county boundaries and names followed those of the districts. The province was headed by a provincial commissioner. It is now moribund, but under the office of the president, the region previously known as Coast province is now known as Coast region and is under a Regional Commissioner appointed by the president residing at Mombasa City.
