warm water - very small ripples rather than waves - great to swim in. Strong sea breeze from mid morning - very easy to get sunburnt!

If you are looking to get away from noise pollution, social media then Diani beach is the answer. You have the option to either do nothing, exercise on a beautiful uncrowded beach or chill on a beach front restaurant or bar.

Amazing beach but the only down side is the locals who constantly try to sell something. We were even chased. We just wanted to relax and scroll around but that never happened, sadly.

A beautiful white sandy beach with the ever changing colours of the Indian Ocean as a backdrop. At low tide the turquoise, blue, beige and many other tones are ever changing and fascinating to watch. The water is lovely and warm and the bathing safe.

Diani Beach is probably the best place I've ever seen. My friends and I usually visit the beach, whether it's on holidays or not, just awesome.
