Camels plod along the wide, ivory sands of Diani, a palm-fringed beach on the Kenyan coast. Time moves slowly here beneath the yolk-orange sun, where your only obligation is to swing in a shaded hammock and occasionally wade into the warm water. Gentle waves lap the shore, protected by a distant reef that acts as a coral garden home to kaleidoscopic marine life. If you don’t feel like sitting still though, head to nearby Mombasa. Settlers have converged here from across the ocean since the 12th century, resulting in the old town’s tangle of Hindu temples and dome-topped mosques, its narrow lanes leading to the UNESCO relic, Fort Jesus.
From here, you can peer along the coast towards Diani. While snorkellers bob on the surface of this watery wonderland, the multi-coloured sails of dhow sailboats ride the waves and divers venture further into the Indian Ocean to explore eerie shipwrecks. Between November and February, colossal migratory whale sharks join them, gliding silently through the water. More natural wonders await in Diani’s indigenous forests; let a member of the Digos community lead you through the sacred Kaya Kinodo Forest, teaching you about their ancient culture and traditions as you wander.
Diani beach breaks are the perfect, relaxing way to end your Kenya adventure, so let our travel gurus arrange a stay in a luxurious Diani beachside resort with a side trip to historic Mombasa.
