White sand

I enjoyed walking on white sand, the blue sky, photo taking and busking on the sand as I watch. Night music

We really loved Diani. We live in Nairobi and had alt day visits Zanzibar, Tanzania. We enjoyed Diani much more. Plus, it was cheaper and easier to get to. Zanzibar was good but we won't likely go back. We will go back I Diani a couple times before we leave Kenya!

The beach is beautiful, incredibly stunning. But, it's impossible to enjoy as the hawkers ruin the experience. We were expecting a romantic walk along the beach as the sun was going down but being continually harassed made the whole experience incredibly uncomfortable. Or lying on a sunbed, being watched and being surrounded if you moved towards the sea. Same for... More

The beach is good, still you need shoes for the sea, consider also the tides. What is really annoying are the locals who are everywhere on the beach, trying to sell you everything and proposing you to marry them. You cannot enjoy fully the beach and the vacation fully because of this.
