About 17 kilometers of white sandy beach, dramatically changing with the tides and Palm trees growing right up to the high water mark. Sporting activities ranging from kayaking, windsurfing and SUP to diving, kite surfing and sky diving. A few spectacular beach bars and restaurants. Accomodation ranging from backpacker to luxury. What do you want more?

I noticed a lot of comments about the beach boys destroying the experience - wich I find really sad because THEY made the experience for us. Instead of ignoring them etc we talked to them and spent several hours EVERY DAY just walking a long the beach talking. Music, politics, our different lives etc. It was really giving. We became...

Very quiet at the moment for a number of mainly political reasons. This is the time to come. As safe as it ever was and just as beautiful. The small businesses need support and many a bargain is available at the moment. Get yourself and your family to Diani Beach and you will not regret it

A beautiful place to visit. The blue waters of the Indian Ocean, turning golden with sunrise and sunset. The white sands and friendly locals. Great accommodation with a variety of things to or just relax and unwind

So few guests but even when hotel full beach is never crowded. Volleyball on the beach daily. Easy to walk to other hotels.

I have visited North Coast before but my visit to Diani this time was quite something different. THe beaches are quite clean and with less beach boys as compared to North Coast. Ofcourse not forgetting the white sands, very ideal for an early morning jog. THe boat rides to the nearby coral reefs and just to view the water game,... More

Diani beach is one of the most stunning places i have ever visited. Gorgeous white sand, crystal blue sea and beautiful palm trees lining the beach. It would have definitely got a 5* from me if it wasn't for the beach boys constantly trying to sell you souvenirs. It can get very irritating and spoils the experience on the beach.
