Kinondo Kwetu

Galu-Diani Beach

Kinondo Kwetu
Kinondo Kwetu is situated far end of the remote Galu Beach, south of Diani beach. The nearest hotel is 2 km away and therefore the beach is very private. Lay down on a sun bed and admire the vast ocean or grab one of our foldable beach chairs and sit with your feet in the incoming tide.

Kinondo Kwetu has two pools. At the big and deep one you can sunbathe from morning until evening. And at the smaller “quiet” pool, the afternoon will give you shade from the trees. The ocean is very warm and the beach is white. For most of the year temperatures in the water are between 28C-32C. So, no matter which water activity you like to do – you only need to bring a swimsuit.
