is a section of the southern Kenyan Coast
Although being situated only around 25km south of the heavily touristed stretch of the coastline up at Diani Beach, Msambweni is another world, 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 ...Msambweni House
... is probably the best small hotel on the southern coast, a really pleasant owner-run operation with just a handful of rooms.The Ocean Spa Lodge
... is another really high quality beach option, also one of the best on this coast, but slightly larger and with more facilities.
The usual stay duration in this area is 4 to 6 nights, with access most commonly being via flights into the airport at Diani Beach, or less conveniently via the international airport at Mombasa.
The area is most commonly combined in longer trips with a selection of the better safari areas around the country, including Maasai Mara
, Chyulu Hills
and Laikipia North
