Kenya is renowned for being one of the best safari destinations in the world, but it also offers world class beach holidays.
The pristine, palm fringed coastline is rimmed by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, with a balmy, tropical climate. Situated south of Kenya’s second largest city, Mombasa, the beautiful beaches of Diani and Msambweni are a blissful option for travellers wishing to unwind after an exhilarating safari in Kenya's national parks and reserves.
Diani is located between the Indian Ocean and the open plains of the Shimba Hills National Reserve. The 25km strip is made up of Tiwi Beach, Galu Beach, Chale Island, Funzi Island and Kinondo.
Lounge on the beach and soak up the sun, or enjoy a range of activities including breathtaking diving and snorkelling on the coral reefs, boat trips to Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park to spot dolphins and other marine wildlife, and visits to Shimba Hills National Reserve for another safari experience to spot elephant, antelope, warthog, baboon and giraffe.
Further south, Msambweni is one of Kenya's most unspoiled beaches, where time seems to have stood still. The only people you’re likely to see on the beach here are the local fishermen, making it the perfect place for those looking for absolute tranquillity and relaxation.
