Welcome to Che Shale

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.

Enjoy great value when you combine your stay with a Beginner Kitesurf Course. Our kite spot is at your doorstep so you can maximize your kite lessons.
