Galu is an extension of Diani’s powder white sands but is much less busy, sometimes without a single person on it. It is undoubtedly one of the world’s most beautiful and least spoilt beaches. Diani has been voted the best beach in Africa by the World Travel Market and one of the 25 best beaches in the world by Trip Advisor.

Four airlines now fly in from Nairobi, from both Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Wilson Airport. We offer complimentary collection from and to the airstrip which is seven minutes away. The Masai Mara, Laikipia, Lamu and other famous Kenyan destinations are accessible from here. We can arrange a taxi to collect from Mombasa’s Moi International Airport.
