Beautiful Galu Beach is an extension of Diani’s powder white sands but is much less busy, sometimes without a single person on it – and the beach is bigger, cleaner and quieter than Diani Beach. Diani has been voted the best beach in Africa by the World Travel Market and one of the 25 best beaches in the world by Trip Advisor. All kinds of water sports and activities are available nearby – please see the ‘detailed information’ section for suggestions.
Only a short walk away from the houses there is a supermarket stocking basic provisions, along with several fruit and vegetable stalls. Along the beach road and within 5-10 minutes’ drive there are four larger supermarkets and a number of banks, ATM machines and gift shops. There are a number of good places to eat and drink nearby including Sails Beach Bar & Restaurant and the Blue Marlin.
