Beach accommodation

Beach accommodation in KenyaSunset on Lamu Island, East Coast, Kenya

Imagine waking up to the sound of the surf gently lapping the shore. You step outside to enjoy a fresh Kenyan coffee in the shade of your verandah and you're greeted by a glistening blue ocean. Apart from the odd fisherman, the beach is yours to enjoy a quiet morning stroll. The sun is warm on your skin and the white powdery sand cools the soles of your feet as you amble along the shoreline of the Indian Ocean. The clear, lukewarm water offers a refreshing swim before heading off to join your friends for breakfast... If this sounds like nothing more than a dream, then it's high time you took a real beach holiday in Kenya.
