An impeccable, 10 km stretch of powdery sand, Diani Beach is quickly becoming one of the most popular spots in Kenya. Once you see it, you’ll understand why. The sand here is one of the softest found on the planet, the water is warm yet crystal clear, and, when the wind’s up — the surf is perfect. This is also one of the few places where you can spot the world’s largest fish: the whale shark. On land, you’ll be able to watch monkeys swinging in the trees, play volleyball with the friendly locals, or treat yourself to laying on the silky-smooth sand. Your days on Diani Beach will be filled with spotting rare animals, catching some waves, and soaking up the warm African sun as your tropical dream becomes reality.
