Diani – Ukunda – Kenya

Located on the south coast of Kenya in the Kwale Country and about 30 kilometres away from Mombasa, you’ll stumble upon Ukunda & Diani. These stunning twin towns are known for their scenic beaches and gigantic reef, which serves as a natural shield against waves. The beaches in the area are ideal for swimming even if you’re not a strong swimmer because the water remains shallow near shore, with some underwater sandbars near the surface which allow wading with a clear view of the sandy bottom.
