Be sure to bring your sunglasses to Chale Beach as the sand is so white it can stun you with its beauty and purity. Located on an island about 600 meters off the Kenyan mainland, this intimate beach is surrounded by some of the world’s most remote and exquisite dive sites, in addition to a saltwater lake lying at the heart of a mangrove forest. Nature enthusiasts will never tire of exploring the indigenous and tropical foliage skirting the beach, as it’s home to curious insects and primates, in addition to baby turtles making their way to a watery oasis.
Chale Beach is 30 kilometres south of Mombasa and a 40 minute drive from Diani Beach which is a major beach resort on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya. Embark on your journey by booking a flight to Moi International Airport in Mombasa which is located in the Southwestern tip of the island. You can fly from nearby countries such as Madagascar, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. You will find direct flights to Mauritius with South African Airlines and Kenya Airways.
