Diani Beach is a major beach on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya. It is located 30 km south of Mombasa in Kwale County. It has been voted Africa’s leading beach destination for the fifth time running since 2015. The indigenous people of the area are the Digo, one of the nine ethnic communities known as the Mijikenda. Today the area includes Kenyans of various ethnicities who have migrated to Diani, drawn by the tourism related economy.

On the first day have the whole day chilling around the hotel or beach with tine to do planned recreational activities as well as enjoy the hotel facilities. On the following day you will be served early breakfast before your excursion to Wasini Island and Shimon Cave later in the day.
The name “wasini mpunguti” came from the early inhabitants who originally were the Chinese who were short Chinese, hence the name wasini mpunguti which to the locals means short Chinese. The island has only footpaths of sharp old coral or sand. There are no cars, carts or bicycles. Cargo is transported by foot or by a wheelbarrow with a solid tyre. Transport is over the paths, or via the beaches, mainly consisting of coral and only passable with low tide, or by boat over the sea. Here visitors snorkel and dive between the coral around this tiny sand island which is totally inundated during high tide. Also during the ride you might be able to spot dolphins and other beautiful aquatic animals.
The awesome coral caves of Shimoni in Kwale County are a living testimony of the dark days of slavery on the East African coast. These caves are where slaves were supposedly kept before being loaded onto boats and shipped to Zanzibar. Actual evidence that slaves were kept here consists solely of iron rings in the rocks, but as piles of empty votive rosewater bottles indicate, the site definitely has significance for locals.
Have an early breakfast then depart to the Standard Garge Railway back to Nairobi depending on your flight schedule, where you will be picked up and dropped at the airport, hotel or own place of residence marking the end of the trip
