Where to go on the Kenyan Coast

A few days on the coast, in Watamu or Diani, make for an idyllic way to bring an East African safari to a satisfying close, or simply for an unforgettable stand-alone beach getaway. With its shimmering turquoise waters and tropical fish, white-sand beaches and pristine coral reefs, the Kenyan coast is about as close to a tropical paradise as it gets. 


Diani Beach is a 25km stretch of pearl-white sand on the coast of the Shimba Hills National Reserve. Lapped by the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean, this is an idyllic retreat – whether you’re seeking beach-side relaxation or the perfect surf. Dive a little deeper and you’ll discover pristine coral reefs, a haven for marine life waiting to be explored.


Explore the delights of the sea at the Marine National Park of Watamu. Its coral gardens continue to delight divers while its undeveloped lush forests and pristine beaches are no less a feast for the eyes. This is the venue for relaxing and soaking up the laid back coastal life of Kenya.

Where to stay on the Kenyan Coast

Almanara Boutique Hotel

Set on the crystal waters of the Indian Ocean, Almanara Boutique Hotel is quietly tucked away on a 25-kilometre stretch of the pearl-white Diani Beach. A collection of six exclusive villas come complete with three double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and stunning rooftop terrace. It’s the ideal place to stay if you appreciate your privacy. The villas also come with a private chef too.

Hemingways Watamu

Five-star, just like its eponymous literary namesake, the boutique property of Hemingways Watamu is elegant, refined and excellently appointed for all your holiday needs. This hotel is famed for sublime seafood, its botanical pool and its onsite spa. But don’t miss out on the fishing opportunities, or sunset cruises along Mida Creek. From here you can also practise your golf swing or head off on safari. The adventures are unending, the luxury is undeniable.
