Sand Island Beach Cottages - Tiwi Beach
Only 30 metres from the Indian Ocean, set back in the cooling shade of palm trees, our six self-catering cottages are fully equipped for the perfect beach holiday.
Accommodating from two - eight people, each cottage has it's own private verandah - an idyllic spot to savor the colors of a tropical sunrise or escape the heat of the mid-day sun.
Linen, towels, mosquito nets and fans are all provided. There is also the option of a cook and maid - leaving you only to worry about your next swim!
Delicious fish and seafood can be bought daily from local fishermen. Fresh fruit and juices of the season are available from Sand Island's very own orchards.
Basic sundries are also available. Only 15 minutes away, the town of Diani has a range of shops and supermarkets to cater for all needs.
