The Kenyan Coast region
Diani Beach is a beautiful stretch of fine, white sandy beach on Kenya's East Coast about 30km south of Mombasa. The area has several four star hotels and a few private houses (of which our cottage is one) with direct access to the beach.
The area is ideal for swimming, sun-bathing and relaxing. The nearby hotels offer various watersport facilities and there is a great golf course about 5 minutes drive away. If you wish to see wildlife then it is easy to arrange Safari trips into the various game reserves and about 1.5 hours drive South there is a Marine Park with pristine coral, great snorkelling/diving and where you can swim with the Dolphins.
