The staff really appreciated your positive comments. Please note that towards the end of August we are moving to the old Safari Beach Hotel near Nomads where the beach and water is even better. Karibu anytime!

My wife and I had a very enjoyable hour's windsurf class here. The instructors were very friendly and keen to get us up and moving on the water as soon as possible. Good value for money and on a beautiful part of the beach.

I was quite surprised that I could do some kitesurfing in Kenya. There was good wind and the spot was wonderful! The gear was quality, and the prices were quite decent!

I went for a beginner windsurfing lesson which was great fun and very reasonably priced, but they offer such a wide range of watersports. The staff were very friendly.

The service and help from Joan Wilson and the team at Sand and Sea was fantastic. The windsurfing instructor my son had was great and managed to get him up and running in no time. Will go back when I am next in Diani.
