Looking for a Dream Home or Holiday House? Search Diani Beach Properties
World renown for beautiful coral reefs, the 10 kilometer long beach seaside resort on the Indian Ocean is Kenya’s chief beach tourism destination. Diani Beach is strategically located a few kilometres south the country’s coastal city, Mombasa, and has a population of about 100,000.
Unlike most parts of the greater coastal region of Kenya, this former fishing village has steadily risen to become one of the most in demand holiday destinations globally. Many individual and group property developers and agencies have invested heavily in holiday accommodation in the area. Diani, which spreads from the Kongo river in the north to Galu beach in the south, stands out because of its ultra-modern beach front properties positioned against the beautiful backdrop of the Indian Ocean.
A few minutes from the sandy white resort lies a newly built and well maintained tamarc road that runs parallel to the shore line. This road is lined with multiple resorts (e.g. Diani Beach resort), hotels, restaurants and a variety of other recreational amenities. Diani also nestles several large shopping and crafting centers, retail shops, and financial institutions.
