Our beach is like no other in Kenya and our daily life here at Che Shale revolves around it. It blends rustic luxury with space, zero hassle, and natural beauty. Far from crowded touristy beaches, Che Shale is a way of life.

Che Shale is the perfect place to simply sit back and watch the world go by; however we know that some people like to be more active! We have a selection of activities to keep you as chilled or as active as you like; from kiteboarding, deep sea fishing or perhaps venture further afield and explore the historical town of Malindi. Some activities are seasonal, depending on winds and tides.

From secluded beach walks to adrenaline filled watersports, this is your perfect day at Che Shale.

 "Che Shale is one of those places you hesitate to recommend, because you realise you’ve found paradise and want to keep it a secret"

You might never want to leave our beach, but in case you do, we can organise different adventures and safaris for you. Galana Conservancy, which boarders Tsavo East National Park, offers great wildlife safaris  and its only a 2 hour drive from Che Shale!

We have teamed up with Kulalu Camp to offer our clients a true beach to bush experience. Kulalu was originally set up by Johnny Aniere and holds a special place in our hearts. Here you will experience a small intimate camp, just 2 hours drive away; set on the shady banks of the Galana River looking over the Galana Wildlife Conservancy. 

In the mood to check out Malindi town and some sightseeing? Take a trip into town and visit the Vasco de Gama Pillar, old town, the seafront, the vegetable market and souvenir market (and treat yourself to a perfect cappuccino!).

Just an hours drive from Malindi you will discover the mysterious 14th Century ruins of Gede and can explore the fascinating Sokoke Forest.
