Where to find us

Diamond Beach Village is right on the beach front of Manda island opposite Shela beach – Lamu – Kenya

If your flying to Lamu and coming to stay with us, our boat, Diamond, will collect you from the airport, arriving at the small airstrip and boarding a boat is a great way to start your holiday. No traffic jams just the sea breeze and our captain Ahmed navigating your way as you float past the mangroves and arrive to be greeted by our staff on the beach who will carry your luggage to your room. Take off your shoes and roll up your trousers, its straight onto the beach to feel the Indian ocean when the boat drops you off at the hotel.

Its a 40 minute boat ride from the airport or we can book you a speedboat which takes 10 minutes and quite good fun to whizz across the water.

We are 5 minutes by boat from Shela village or 20 from Lamu town so if you are already on the islands just ask a boat captain to drop you off, they all know where Diamond is and its easy to grab any boat taxi and come join us for a day on the beach.

I’d be lying if I said that I have tasted a better pizza base anywhere in Kenya. The paper thin and crispy crust felt almost like a cracker and possessed a rich smoky flavor without tasting like burnt toast. After wolfing down our meals, my friends and I threw back an obscene number of perfectly concocted cocktails a...
