Fodor's Expert Review Diani Beach

Southern Beaches of Mombasa Beach

Once a true tropical Eden with gorgeous weather and equally gorgeous scenery this 20-km (12-mi) stretch of sand, 30 km (19 mi) south of Mombasa, is the most developed along the southern coast. One reason that it's so popular is that the reef filters out the seaweed, so the sandy shores are truly pristine. If you stay in one of the private cottages, local fishermen will take your order and deliver lobsters and other delicacies of the deep to your door. Best for: snorkelling, sunrise, walking, windsurfing. Amenities: food and drink, watersports
