The Eco Lodge – “The place where dreams come true and where seeds will flourish “

Diamond Beach Village is a family eco lodge which has been running for 17 years, it is also a seafood restaurant, pizza and beach bar.

Situated facing the sunsets on the most pristine beach front of Manda island.  At the mouth the indian ocean, the warmest ocean in the world, known as “the mine of gems” you will find your Diamond. If your looking for total relaxation coupled with exquisite modern food and Swahili culture which takes you back to the ancient rhythms of life, then look no further.

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.

Message from the Manager

My name is Rachael, I am the owner of Diamond Beach. Diamond has been my home for nearly 17 years, originally from the UK I grew up on the beaches of Cornwall, so moving to a remote island with the Indian Ocean as my swimming pool – feels like a natural place to call home.

Waking up and taking early morning walks with yoga on the beach, fresh tropical fruits and eating fresh tuna fish.  Myself and the 14 staff are here to make sure your experience exceeds your expectations. We hope you can come and visit us in our little peace of paradise.
