Diani Beach

A 10 km stretch of talcum powder sand, Diani Beach in Kwale County is becoming known as the softest beach on the planet. The water is warm yet crystal clear and, when the wind’s up, the surf is perfect. It’s also home to the world’s largest fish: the whale shark. On land, watch monkeys swinging in trees, play volleyball with friendly locals, or just relax on silky-smooth sand. Days here are filled with spotting rare animals, catching waves, and soaking up the African sun.
