There's heaps you can do at Nyali Beach from great dining to parasailing, snorkeling, camel riding and simply enjoying the stunning views. Loved it here and will most definitely visit again.

What could have been a nice relaxing time on a beach situated on the Indian Ocean, was spoilt due to being pestered by a string of locals wishing to engage in conversation with us about our nationality and customs etc but it was increasingly apparent that they were being friendly with one objective and that to get money out of...

Beach looks great but so many sellers and beggars is unusable! Such a shame as looks really nice- don't go near - you will get abused!

The beach starts around the public beach, which is a nice pace to interact with the locals, rather than other vacationers. There is a joint there that has decent pool tables right on the beach.

It's the beach!!! Romantic walks, swimming, jet ski hire is available. Along the beach are plenty of restaurants & bars you can try.....but beware of the beach traders who can be hard of hearing when the answer is "no".
