Kinondo and Gazi
is a section of the southern Kenyan Coast.

Travelling south from the busy Diani Beach area, the level of tourist development falls away sharply and the beaches of the Kinondo Peninsular feel blissfully remote by comparison, just a gorgeous stretch of white sand, backed by dirt tracks through pleasant traditional villages.

The plots along the back of the beach are mostly empty, with a few containing the holiday homes of up-country Kenyans and just a couple with small and upmarket beach lodges ...


Kinondo Kwetu ... is a relatively high-end beach lodge towards the southern end of the main beach, one of the best options on this coast.

Kinondo Poa ... is a much lower cost option virtually next door, but not fronting immediately onto the beach.

Cove Retreat ... is a relatively simple but pleasant beach lodge in a private bay a little further south.

The Sands at Chale ... is a relatively large lodge set on an extremely lovely little island on the ocean side of Gazi Bay.


We tend to recommend Kinondo and Gazi a little bit more frequently than the more hectic sections of the coast, most commonly to guests who are looking for reasonably remote location whilst still having access to the diving at Shimoni.

The area is most commonly combined in longer trips with a selection of the better safari areas around the country, including Masai Mara, Amboseli, Chyulu Hills, Meru and Laikipia North.
