Getting There & Away

To get to Tiwi, turn left off the main highway (A14) about 18km south of Mombasa (or right if you're coming from Diani) and follow the track until it terminates at a north–south T-junction.

Buses and matatus (minibuses) on the road between the Likoni ferry crossing and Ukunda can drop you at the start of either track down to Tiwi (KSh100). The Tiwi bus stop or the southern turn-off, known locally as Tiwi ‘spot’, is much easier to find. Although it’s only 3.5km to the beach, both access roads are notorious for muggings, so take a boda-boda (motorcycle taxi; around KSh200), a taxi (KSh500) or hang around for a lift. If you’re heading back to the highway, any of the accommodation places can call ahead for a taxi.
