View Larger Map

South to Mombasa the famous Diani Beach is to be found. From Mombasa city one needs to use the ferry passing over from Mombasa Island to South Coast. Some 45 minutes ride will take you to that most beautiful beach side that also is a major attraction for the local Kenyans from upcountry to spend their holidays.

Most touristic hotels in Kenya are located at the Diani Beach near the small town of Ukunda.

Kenya's south coast beach is the most beautiful beach to be found. Compared with North Coast a big advantage is that the tide is not having such an effect as it has e.g. at Kikambala Beach. The clean white sand will make one feel to have reached the destination of all holiday dreams.
