What Our Past Clients Are Saying: "I will tell all my friends and family about your company. I was initially a little worried about dealing with a travel agency directly in Africa, but now I know that Africa Point is very professional and a reputable company. This trip was for my husband's 50th birthday, and we had a trip of a lifetime, thanks to Africa Point."
The Sands at Chale Island is located at a small romantic island situated 600 meters off the mainland. 10 km south of Diani , 1,2 km long and 0,8 km wide, with a general north/south orientation.
The Island is divided into two parts; The Resort and sacred forest or ’kaya’. The resort lies in 15 acres of indigenous ancient forest, with a stunning 10,000 square meter white sand bay which is protected by a vibrant coral reef.
With an explosion of colourful flora and fauna the island is truly magical and also features a mystical inland tidal mangrove lake.
The Resort is a contemporary mix of Swahili structures, Italian stucco,
Lamu furniture, objects of African art and varnished Mahogany.
Great care has been taken not only to preserve the natural environment of the island, but also to give a truly Kenyan feel by only using natural Kenyan products.
