Kusini Beach Cottages is located in the best Kenyan beach. We are talking about Galu-Kinondo beach, 2 kms. of white sand where the buildings and constructions found are merely residential with few hotels and complexes. Along this virgin beach you will find Kusini Beach cottages.
Galu-Kinondo beach connects to Diani beach when the tide is low, and in Diani beach you’ll find a more touristic beach side with many more hotels and tourist complexes. It is also true that development along south coast of Mombasa has been done followed by principles on preservation and conservation of natural environment (see colobus trust). There is no building which rises up more than 2 floors along sea front and you can sail along Diani and Galu-Kinondo looking at the Tamarind and Coconut trees.
Along Diani Beach you’ll find all sorts of restaurants, Italians (pizzerias), local restaurants that offers Swahili food, or the typical African style of cooking in pots, Japanese restaurants in some hotels, Indian and Chinese restaurants, and so on. However, when someone stays at Kusini Beach Cottages (being in self catering basis), could eat everyday at restaurant quality because our chefs are incredible and can prepare all types of dishes.
Clients can also purchase food (dry food, vegetables and so on) as well as drinks (Diani has a fine selection of South African wines), and either you or your personal chef would get fresh fish or sea food at the cottage door step… Dinner is ready!
In Diani there are bars and discotheques closing very late at night (open 365 days a year). All bars have pool tables and some of the clubs and bars offers “Show Time” with dancers and acrobats entertaining the crowd. Some beach bars right on the beach have toilets and showers in case you decide to swing after sweating and dancing during the night.
From Kusini taxis can be easily organized to take you to bars, restaurants and clubs for 5/6 Euros.
There are Kite surf, wind surf schools and water sports centers along Galu-Kinondo beach.
You can also sail with local made catamarans and get close to the marine reef coral (just in front Kusini Beach cottages) and practice snorkeling (we provide tubes, flippers and glasses). For the diving lover’s there are many appointed sites with amazing dives to be enjoyed.
Canoes can also be provided.
If you like soccer, you can be delighted by locals playing it on the beach. Camel walks are also available well as mountain bikes rental, and other activities if you can leave our premises and resume “Kusini Effect”.
“Kusini Effect” is what most of our clients experience when they check in our little paradise and can be translated to lie on sun beds, enjoy swimming pool, eat indecently and enjoy the environment.
