Kenya’s Diani Beach Named Best in Africa
Diani Beach on the Kenyan coast has been voted the best beach destination in Africa.
The annual awards, which have been described as “the Oscars of the travel industry”, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry.
The recognition, during the 21st World Travel Awards, comes amid calls by players in the tourism sector for the United Kingdom to consider reviewing travel bans on Mombasa after security in the Coast region was restored.
Another winner from the Coast region was the Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort & Spa, which was voted as the continent’s leading eco-hotel.
