Diani Beach is a major beach resort on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya . It is located 30 kilometers south of Mombasa, in the nearby Kwale County and also known to be a popular Kite surfing location.
While the WORLD is having trouble trying to get to grips with COVID-19 and at the same time travel has almost come to a stand still. Take this time to think about the things you would like to do once this has passed.
Safaris remain high on many peoples list of things to do. SO, look up places you would to go to, make an enquiry and enquire now for next year. Who knows, but you might be able to get some good deals now and travel when it is safe again.
Just something to think about.
If you have booked a safari to Africa, please do not cancel it, but postpone it to a later date. Most operators and properties I am sure will happy to do this for you.
As I write this I am in a camp in Shompole in Kenya, thinking what a great place this is to be right now!
The beach is about 10 kilometers long, from the Kongo river to the north and Galu beach to the south (the southern point of reference is an old Baobab tree). It is adjacent to the town of Ukunda, the population of which nears 100,000 inhabitants.
A small airstrip is located between the beach area and the Mombasa-Lunga Lunga road. The water remains shallow near shore, with some underwater sandbars near the surface which allow wading with a clear view of the sandy bottom. Inland from the beach, there is extensive vegetation including numerous palm trees which cover the coastal areas, unlike the dry acacia trees of the mountainous Kenyan Highlands.
The general area is known for its coral reefs, black-and-white colobus monkeys, and for the closely located Shimba Hills National Reserve a wildlife reserve which looks out over the Indian Ocean. Diani Beach has high-class restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, and several shopping centers.
