Diani Beach is about 30 km south of Mombasa, about 2 hours drive and a ferry crossing. This well-known Kenyan beach is adjacent to the town of Ukunda, where there is also an airstrip for those who prefer to fly. The beautiful black and white colobus monkes can be spotted playing in the trees around the beach. People get here... More

There was much to see on Diani Beach from fishermen with starfish and shells to display to camel rides and snorkelling. There's something for everyone here.

So I was there and I,m totally satisfied from my stay there. We spent lovely holidays in Diani beach Kenya. We was at Swahili Beach Resort right at Diani beach.The place is all in essence very cultural, very Swahili!!! Love the service, ambience and general feel about it.

We were staying at the Galu stretch of this fantastic beach. Less coral/reefs. So we were able to enjoy a spectacular boat ride with Captain 'Omar Sharif' (may not have been his real name!) He and his super crew operate out of the Neptune Hotel further up the beach, the quite end. Great snorkelling, out to the sand bank, standing... More
