We visited based on people comments but it was a big disappointment.
The beach is really quite ugly compared to other beaches nearby.
The restaurant was good. Nice facility and a lot of food although you do pay for it. Fixed menu 2500ksh per person excl drinks. So go there only if you want to eat a lot and don't care so much about the surroundings.

One of the most beautiful places I've encountered during my travels in Africa!
Don get confused by "Robinson Crusoe" - The other restaurant on the same island. They are just using their name, but can't compare!
Robinson island is not just an amazing restaurant - set in a beautiful remote scenery - it's a hotel and a perfect place to volunteer too. Above all it's supports the surrounding community by completely sponsoring the islands school and countless environmental projects in the vicinity.
I spent two whole weeks on the island - enjoying affordable luxury chalets with huge verandas and breathtaking views, enjoyed mouthwatering seafood and amazing breakfasts, went snorkeling, helped out in school, learned a lot from the friendly host about Kenyas wildlife, environment and people - must of all I simply enjoyed the privacy of a remote and unspoiled island-pardise in the indian ocean - could have stayed forever...

I have been here at least 6 times. I usually do not like seafood but I had the best red snapper in my life and a bowl of prawns that made me not want to wash my hands

Robinson island is an hours drive north of Malindi .It is as nature intended and run by a delightful Lady and her German husband who are seriously into ecologie and you shoud enjoy the work they have achivied in replanting the mangroves around this unique Island.
You can at first, as we did ,enjoy a day trip here to the natural and fine beach via the punted boat across the creek to their island home. The beautiful cooling breeze from the ocean is a refreshing change from air-con! The lunch served around 1.00pm after the drums to summon other adventure's is a great experience. Fresh mangrove crabs ,prawns from the sea and fish cooked with a huge supply of well cooked vegatable rice with a plateful of fruit to follow are well served by friendly and chatty lads. Remember if you want a beer or wine bring your own as there is no licesence.Our second visit saw us renting one of thier rustic ,simply built but very attractive bungalows with shower and toilet, and fantastic terrace overlooking the ocean.A delightful return to nature and interesting and informative company. We realeased a fisherman caught turtle back to the wild!
