Diani beach is beautiful and clean with crystal clear and blue water. Some tourists have described it as heaven on earth following their experience and I agree with them.  The beach has powdery soft white sand and the ocean is of multiple shades of blue depending if the sun is out or not. Adorning the scenery is mile after mile of stunning palm trees, lining the beach and you will love watching the sun rise in the morning.

Diani Beach is a really beautiful and relaxing beach. It is also a peaceful beach save for a few locals trying to sell stuffs like souvenirs and fresh coconuts etc, but they are polite and not intrusive.
