Watamu although a popular area, is generally quieter and there are fewer hotels here. Diani is a stunning long stretch of beach and because of the easy access it is a popular destination for a beach holiday or as an add on after a safari experience.
The transfers from Mombasa airport are relatively short and there are many resorts large and small to the North of Mombasa and also to the South.
Although the big chain hotels have many facilities, we tend to favour the smaller properties when we can. These more boutique style hotels tend to offer a more local feel and a more personalised service.
