          Stilts is superb budget accommodation on Diani Beach, right next to 40 Thieves Bar, Skydive Diani and Diani Marine. The food is good, the accommodation is secure, and you can feed the bushbabies at 1900hrs every night. Great place!

          I think you can just take a local matatu to Diani Beach. Stilts is located quite central in Diani.
