Welcome to our stylish beach retreat with world-class kitesurfing located on the North Kenya coast.
Well distant from crowded beaches, indulge in miles of serene and deserted sands, against a lush backdrop of coconut palms and indigenous vegetation. With its blend of low-key luxury and natural beauty, Che Shale has been one of Kenya’s most iconic destinations for almost 40 years.
All the charm and quiet of nature is captured in 9 uniquely designed, castaway-chic style beachfront bandas that combine laid-back style and attention to details.
Fresh seafood by the beach, an organic crab farm and a tempting array of experiences to choose from – from kitesurfing, big-game fishing, dhow sailing, kayaking, and more - will keep you as active or as chilled as you wish to be.
Unhurried and uncomplicated, Che Shale is sure to charm you.
