Things to be aware of
It is important to understand how the winds and tides change throughout the seasons in Diani, and how Alfajiri deals with it. The section of beach directly in front of Alfajiri Villas changes from middle of November to the end of January each year. In this part of the world they have trade winds and the Kazkazi winds change the landscape. The Kaskazi (north-easterly) wind blows and moves the sand away leaving the corals and rocks in front of the villas exposed at low tide. This is the case for a few months each year.
Alfajiri provides guests with reef-shoes; if you walk for few minutes along the beach, you will eventually reach pristine white sands. By the mid to end of January, the Kaskasi wind brings back the sands and white beaches can be enjoyed once more.
There is an open Land Rover to transport clients to the different beaches during their stay.
Diani Beach is a residential area and as a result, restaurants, cafes and nightlife are limited.
