The beaches of Kenya can be divided into four main regions, each of which offers a unique experience.
Kenya's South Coast is renowned for palm-fringed white sand beaches such as ever-popular Diani Beach as well as accessible coral reefs. The scuba diving - in particular at Kisite Marine Reserve - is excellent and there are many wreck dives to entice advanced divers. There's a hassle-free atmosphere on the South Coast which together with a wide range of accommodation, kids' entertainment clubs and golf courses make for matchless family beach holidays.
For a far quieter South Coast experience, six kilometres of beautiful beach awaits at Msambweni, 25 kms south of Diani. There's excellent snorkelling and diving nearby as well as an 18-hole course and plenty of opportunities for sailing, fishing and watersports.
