    Super-relaxing holiday, cottage was 20 metres from the beach, a simple place to stay, great place to get away and chill out. Great snorkelling, beautiful rockpools, and saw a giant turtle! You can buy fresh seafood and prawns on the beach and have them cooked...More

    Wonderful having you to stay and so pleased that you had a good time here in our little bit of unspoilt paradise on the Kenya South Coast. Seeing the turtle was so exciting - she (or another) came back last week, again got caught by...More

    My fourth time in Sandisland Beach Cottages was absolutely paradise like as the last three times and even better. The self contained makuti roofed cottages, with inbuilt natural air conditioning, are as close to the beach as possible. The sea with a coral garden in...More

    Sand island is great if you are looking for a beautiful spot to unwind and relax. The beach is not quite the soft sand of Diani, but it is still a lovely setting.The cottages are simply furnished, clean and comfortable. Each has a sea view...More

    Thank you very much for taking the time to review us; certainly seclusion is something we promote and our geography helps as at high tide we’re cut off from beaches to the north and south rendering us ‘private’. Diani does, indeed, offer the chance to...More

    It is always such a joy for us when guests come and enjoy this wonderful place called Sand Island. Snorkeling is good here when one adventures a little more near the reef towards the Star Fish Garden and although not abundant the variety is great....More
