It is all white sands and blue water. A bird’s eye view when the aircraft is about to land into the Ukunda Strip airport is exhilarating! It is a place not to miss. It is a favorite.

I was raised in Africa and always associated it with safaris. Wow what a surprise to find Diani! You had to pinch us to remind us that we weren't on a tropical island somewhere because it sure felt like it! Will be going back again...More

The beach is very white and clean and there is an island nearby that one can visit by boat. Lovely place to visit.
