Diani’s long white sandy beach stretches along a breathtaking 25 kilometres, that are framed by crystal waters and coconut palm groves. The coral reef is home to sea turtles, dolphins, and numerous tropical fish. The beach is bordered by lush green rainforest full of colourful birds and the rare breed of Colobus, an almost extinct black and white monkey, unique to this area of East Africa. The sprawling dimensions of the Shimba Hills natural reserve, a sanctuary for elephants, buffalos, antelopes and other wildlife, is located a little further inland and just a short drive from Diani (approx 35 minutes away).
In Diani there are no problems of tsunami, cyclones, hurricanes or earthquakes. Also, business-wise, the working season is basically all year around; usually there is a low raining season during May and June, when most of the hotel close for maintenance. In the last years WaterLovers has closed from 2 to 4 weeks maximum per year, due to the many booking requests.
Services such as banks, supermarkets, shops and European standard hospitals are ready at hand.
