Where to find us

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

If you’re 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. You will arrive to be greeted by our staff who will carry your luggage to your room.

Its a 40 minute boat ride from the airport or we can book you a speedboat which takes 10 minutes.

We are 5 minutes by boat from Shela village or 30 minutes from Lamu town, all the local taxi boats know where Diamond is and can bring you here for a day on the beach.
