Where to go on the coast?

Hi - not sure this is the right forum. I have 5 nights to visit the coast in Kenya and want to drive from Mombasa. With my husband and two kids. I want somewhere quiet with beautiful beaches and some simple beach restaurants. Any suggestions?

On the internet I read about Vipingo Beach (south of Kilifi). Should be a nice beach, only a few private houses to stay. I didn't go there yet but will visit soon. On the other side of the road there's the Vipingo Ridge with the golf course (also accommodation).

You don't mean the Vipingo Ridge Beach Club do you? If so it's a private beach club for Vipingo Ridge residents, members and their guests

No, a few months ago I checked the internet and I found a few private houses to rent on/close to the beach. Maybe the following one might be ok coz it's one of the smaller houses (sleeps 4 people): kenyaholidaylets.com/vipingo/vipingo-beach-c…
