It is the perfect place to come and relax for a day on the beach, a weekend away from the city, or weeks totally immersed in the peace of the island. There are no cars on Lamu or Manda, the only form of transport is donkey or boat: The pace of life is inevitably slow and relaxed. The island is located roughly two degrees south of the equator therefore you can guarantee that perfect island getaway from July – April.
Come and join us for sunset sailing, snorkeling, kite surfing, bird watching, star gazing, and the occasional full moon party.
Diamond Beach Village Accommodation
Staying at Diamond gives you the chance to get back to nature and allow the wind in the trees and the lap of the ocean to send you to sleep and the bird song to slowly bring you back to the world in the morning. Early beach walks with the dogs are a great way to start the day with a swim before breakfast.
Every banda is en suite with a shower, toilet, and sink with a front porch, which is furnished with tables and chairs so that you can relax in privacy and the doubles have swing beds & hammocks outside.
Diamond Beach is the perfect place for single travelers, couples, families, or a group of up to 20 wanting total seclusion and privacy. It’s a real back to basics with luxury. Switch off your phones and enjoy the island vibes.
