Absolutely must visit! We had such a great time and look forward to our next visit. We were 16 in total (2 children - 18 months and 9 yrs old) and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

If you want to relax, just go to Diani Beach! Nice restaurants, you’re able to relax on the beach without being approached by the “Beach boys”. Very nice people!

Stunning beach , and ocean like a bath You will need beach shoes as the tide does go out exposing corals . Lovely white sand pretty shells The sand is sort of bouncy difficult to explain but it’s is.

The beach is postcard perfect with white sand and warm blue waters. The beach hawkers are quite annoying though and follow you until you are firm with them

I have been to Diani beach many times. The white washed sand always fascinates me. The Beach is pretty long from the hotel. Really good and resturant hotel options around.

@TravelNTings #TravelNTings it was amazing to stay right on the water where you would see just breathtaking views and multiple ocean colors. Lots of locals making their living selling you different items, but you get used to just saying no thank you and moving on.
