Kenyaways Kite Village

Kenyaways is the ideal spot to soak up the sun, do plenty of swimming and watersports, and is notorious for its kitesurfing spot. Galu Beach is the gem of the Kenyan coast,  with wide unspoilt, uncrowded beaches. It is not far from Tsavo East National Park and has a direct flight to Masai Mara where you are bound to have the safari of a lifetime.

The advantages of kiting and kiteboarding at Kenyaways are endless; it is designed for kiters and we truly recommend a kiteboarding holiday here with us!!

Located on the pristine, tropical lagoon of Diani beach, Kenya's most beautiful beach,  is Kenyaways. A quaint guesthouse right on the beach which feels more like a family home than a hotel. Enjoy the casual, laid-back, barefoot lifestyle of the Kenyan coast and escape into a totally relaxed beach holiday.

The accommodation was The Kennaway family beach home converted into a 10 bedroom beach guesthouse so it the same size as a boutique hotel but with budget friendly rates. The name Kenyaways is a play on the names Kenya and Kennaway.
