Your Destination

Chale Island
Lying just four degrees south of the equator, Chale Island offers you a choice of worlds that no other island can equal. Coral seas abundant with fish life, coastal forests and mangroves teaming with bird and insect life, snow white beaches offering safe warm bathing, and of course Kenya’s world famous safari parks. Chale Island is a small romantic island situated 600 metres off the mainland. The Island is divided into two parts; resort and sacred forest or “kaya”. The resort lies in 15 acres of indigenous ancient forest, with a stunning 10,000 squaremetre 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 if that is not enough, also features a mystical inland tidal mangrove lake.
