I would post this in the relevant sub forums but I'd be worried I'd get more responses for Watamu if I posted in the Watamu section, and likewise for Diani.
Which is better, Watamu or Diani for the following?
* Walk in snorkeling (off beach without much effort to get to corals)
* Good diving schools (I've got my Open water but I'm not a cowboy yet, so we'd need a school with good equipment and instructors)
* Affordable and good snorkeling tours (we would love to go snorkeling daily if walk in isn't possible, but wouldn't want to spend a fortune)
* Two day / 1 night safari trip, any recommendations for where to go and whom to book with?
Currently we have our hearts set on Watamu, because it sounds more chilled out and less touristy, and pretty much ticks off most those things. I'm not sure who I'd go with for the safari or the diving though, as there seems to be less choice in Watamu than Diani.
Any responses are greatly appreciated!
