Diani Beach is one of the most exclusive locations for Kenya beach holidays. Situated on the South Coast of Mombasa, the 25 Kilometre strip is made up of Tiwi Beach, Galu Beach, Chale Island, Funzi Island and Kinondo. The pearly-white sands blend into the turquoise warm waters of the Indian Ocean, creating a perfect backdrop of tranquillity for a truly memorable African Holiday. The large tidal movement on Diani Beach creates a width of over 150m of white sand at low tide.
Spa or Golf?
If it's relaxation your after, you can unwind at the Cloud Nine Health Spa, located at Almanara. Yoga, Pilates and Zumba classes can also be arranged on request. Perhaps a round of golf is more to your liking? Enjoy 18 holes at the Leisure Lodge Par 72 Championship course.
