Experience Diani Beach, Kenya

Diani Beach is a popular tourist destination on Kenya’s beautiful Indian Ocean coast. If you’re a first-time tourist to Africa or a seasoned traveler, the white sand beach and azure waters are a must-see. In reality, the area’s delightfully warm waters and beautiful coral reefs appeal to a wide range of tourists, including partygoers, couples, honeymooners, backpackers, and water-sports enthusiasts. But if you think that sounds like a traditional resort area, you’re mistaken. From funky kite-surfing lodges to romantic honeymoon spots, Diani has some of Kenya’s best accommodations. The majority of the locations are scattered along the beach lane, concealed behind a thicket of trees.

When lounging in a hammock becomes too much, visit the coral mosques with their open-air arches overlooking the ocean, walk through the sacred woods with guides hugging trees that speak in their ancestors’ voices, or visit the monkey sanctuary – these are excellent ways to see more of the coast than just the sun and sand.
