Things to do around,Diani reef beach hotel

Hi, my fiancé and I are travelling to Diani reef beach hotel and spa and are on a half board basis as we like venturing out of hotels and exploring our surroundings during lunch hours. Are there many decently priced restaurants and shopping markets? Can anyone recommend a restaurant? We are excited but worried there might be little choice on offer of too far to walk to.

Thank you in advance.

try Moiz Boutique opposite of Diani Reef for shopping - there is a small bar beside where you can enjoy a cold drink (Bella Cruz Pub). Also different restaurants like Galaxy (not so mine), italian cuisine (Aniello`s - my favourite, Leonardo`s - fantastic ice cream), Leisure Lodge Gold Club - good for a sundowner or light lunch.

Also if you walk at the beach direction Mombasa - about 800 m you will find a lovely beach restaurant (the one of the Bahari Dhow Beach Villas)...and much more...

Thank you for the help. Wanted something personal like this to help me get a feel of what's on offer.

Ali Barbours Cave is lovely if you want an evening meal away from the hotel. The restaurant is built into a cave, lit by fairy lights and candles. Food was good and pretty reasonably priced. The restaurant will arrange to collect you from your hotel and drop you back after you've eaten free of charge. Hotel reception can book a table for you.

They are not open for lunches but the nearby Forty Thieves bar owned by the same people is.
